I have a Problum building An Exicutable as It does not find the include file.


#include "stdafx.h"
int _tmain(int argc, _TCHAR* argv[])
return 0;

Error message

fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'stdafx.h': No such file or directory
Any assistance would be appreciated in fixing this problem


1. Delete that #include line

2. Somewhere in project settings, compiler, pre-processor(?), there is an option for "precompiled headers". Turn that option off.

Ugh. If you don't know why that's ugh, you shouldn't be using it. Try this instead:

#include <iostream>

int main()
  std::cout<<"Hello, world!\n";

Thank you will see if I can find the spot to correct the problem
