I recently had the fortune of going to Microsoft HQ in Redmond, WA. I got a voucher for the company store, and got MS Visual Studio Standard Ed. for $20 Anyhoo, I uninstalled my introductory version and installed SEd. Then I tried using a CTime object and I keep getting this error:
error C2146: syntax error : missing ';' before identifier 'CTime_now'
error C2501: 'CTime' : missing storage-class or type specifiers
fatal error C1004: unexpected end of file found
I got that same error when trying to use the DirectX classes and structers when I didn't have the include directories for my SDK included into my compiler's directory options.
My question is, do I need to include yet another special directory, or do I need to include a specific header? I didn't see either of these things in the help info, and as far as I can tell, the CTime class is NEVER declared in ANY of the header files...
Any help would be great.
Forgot to mention, my current included headers (minus my includes for splitting the code) are:

You might want to look carefully at the directories under tools/options. But why use Ctime? try using timeGetTime(); instead, easier and quicker. It returns time in ms or seconds depending on what you set it to.
