Make dll from .exe RRS feed

  • Question


    I want to convert a windows based application (.exe) into a dll.
    I received "fatal error C1189: #error : WINDOWS.H already included. MFC apps must not #include <windows.h> C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\atlmfc\include\afxv_w32.h"
    Then I found out that windows.h is indirectly included through other files like afxtempl.h , afxdisp.h. But I cannot Comment out this directive because it contains classes that are inherited from these files.
    Also there are several other classes in the application with the same problem.

  • Hi Mommukhtar ,


    There are a possibility you may not be using the correct version of windows in stdafx.h file of your project.

    you use version mentioned below when building for a Windows 2000 or later machine.

    Windows version
    #define _WIN32_WINNT 0x0500 

    #define WINVER 0x0500

    #define _WIN32_WINDOWS 0x0500


    or send ur code to me to see the actual senario.
