Hello, I am working on a server program that deals with opening files, or at least that is all that is relevant for this post. I am using VC++.
I use multithreading so that it can be multi-client, of course, but when I try to use this line:

infile.open(filename, ios::in);

(assume "ifstream infile" and "string filename" defined)
This causes the error "unresolved external symbol __CrtDbgReport". I am fairly sure this has something to do with the multithreading aspect of the program because it only started appearing when I added the threads.

The same exact error comes up when I try to simply include iostream.h but I didn't think of it much at the time because I learned that printf() worked. However, unless there is a fileopenf(), I think this an impasse.

If there is a way to fix this fstream problem, maybe it would also fix the iostream problem.

Gah! Why does that work and why are my problems always so simple and stupid?
No, that was a rhetorical question. Thanks for the help.
