Hello, I'm new to C++ but after reading two books regardin this language I made this part of a program. While those two files (.h and .cpp) were concatenated in the main cpp file the program worked without errors, aldo it did not return anythig. As I split the program to header files I have several errors:

Error	3	error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'lists': No such file or directory	i:\sync\sortwaternetwork\sortwaternetwork\noduri.h	4

I guess it all strats from this C2653 error which speads through all my new header files.

Sorry. Forgot to mention that I use Windows 7 x64 and Microsoft Visual Studio 2010.

I guess it all strats from this C2653 error which speads through all my new header files.

The first error that occurs is:

Error	3	error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'lists': No such file or directory	i:\sync\sortwaternetwork\sortwaternetwork\noduri.h

However, that does not match the noduri.h/#include <list> that you posted - which somewhat implies that you might be working on one set of files but compiling another set of files.

Edited 6 Years Ago by mitrmkar: n/a

Actually, those are from the same project. The only difference is that I modified temporarlly <list> with <lists> to see if it gives error (in other words, i was not shure what is the corect form). but i came back to the <list> statement and that's why you see that difference.
The idea is that even this error is missing if I do not use header files but only one file in the project.

Actually, those are from the same project. The only difference is that I modified temporarlly <list> with <lists> to see if it gives error

OK, as far as I understand, then the above error message listing is not a match for the code that you posted.
If that's the case, then please re-compile and re-post the actual errors.

[EDIT]
In the header file you have commented out using namespace std; and in at least two of the method declarations you are using list .

Those you can fix by ..

void CautaElementeTip(char *tip, std::list<clsElemente>& elemente);

Repost with the exact code and the exact error list. Sorry for my previous posts.

error list excluding the error for other header since the errors are the same :

I think you have an issue with precompiled headers.
In the noduri.cpp file, switch the order of your #includes to be

#include "stdafx.h"  // <- first the precompiled header
#include "noduri.h"  // then other includes follow
...

The above Wikipedia link briefly explains your issue, MSDN documents it more thoroughly - it can be rather complicated actually. You may want to turn the precompiled headers option off altogether.

Comments
Great help.

THANK YOU!

We're getting somewhere. There goes most of the errors. I think it was that simple.
But hey, why is that (since is precompiled before any class definition) ?

So, now I only have errors: "function must return value" which will be solved once I write the whole function.

But there is another error and I don't know how to solve it:

Error	2	error C1075: end of file found before the left brace '{' at 'i:\sync\sortwaternetwork\sortwaternetwork\Form1.h(7)' was matched	I:\Sync\sortWaterNetwork\sortWaterNetwork\sortWaterNetwork.cpp	20
// sortWaterNetwork.cpp : main project file.

#include "stdafx.h"
#include "Form1.h"


using namespace sortWaterNetwork;

[STAThreadAttribute]
int main(array<System::String ^> ^args)
{
	// Enabling Windows XP visual effects before any controls are created
	Application::EnableVisualStyles();
	Application::SetCompatibleTextRenderingDefault(false); 

	// Create the main window and run it
	Application::Run(gcnew Form1());
	return 0;
}

Are you sure these are all the errors? I notice the first one appears to be labeled # 49. When you have compilation errors, it is best to start with the first error and work your way down. That way, as you fix your errors and retry the compilation, the odds increase that others may go away as well.

You have several class definitions (clsNoduri, clsReservoir, etc.) that appear to be inheriting from clsElemente, but you haven't specified any inheritance levels. I'm surprised the compiler isn't flagging that.

Post, exactly, what the first error (error # 1) in your error report is. You may have to scroll the output screen up to see it.

Edited 6 Years Ago by Fbody: n/a

Looks like your header file is lacking a '}', the sortWaterNetwork.cpp seems to be OK.

[EDIT]
@Fbody
I think you missed that the OP mentioned "error list excluding the error for other header since the errors are the same", hence #49.

Edited 6 Years Ago by mitrmkar: n/a

@Fbody: Yes, but that's ok. All those errors where the same and came out from not putting the inlcude stdafx.h first. But now it seems I messed arround with the form header. I will have to solve that issue. Hopefully I'll find the problem soon.

Thank You again guys.

[EDIT]
@Fbody
I think you missed that the OP mentioned "error list excluding the error for other header since the errors are the same", hence #49.

No, didn't miss it, it just seemed to me that there were too many left out. Either that or they weren't as similar as thought. Whatever the case, it got worked out, so it doesn't matter anyway.

@OP:
You need to add a closing/right curly brace near the end of your Form1.h file. Either you deleted it somehow or you opened another sub-block somewhere higher up that you forgot to close properly. Make sure all your braces are properly paired.

Edited 6 Years Ago by Fbody: n/a

@OP
Just a thought, this missing '}' might be due to namespace usage, so

// Begin the namespace
namespace my_namespace {

// code here

} // <- namespace must end with a '}'

Edited 6 Years Ago by mitrmkar: n/a

I solve it, it was similar to this. When I moved those classes and functions I messedup with those braces. It's all rolling now.

Thank You.

PS: I think it should be made a sticky post with error/solving situations where something weird like this happens. The compiler doesn't explain at all what is happening and therefor You can misjudge the cause.
