Using Microsoft Visual Studio Express version for building solutions can cause errors

Technote (troubleshooting)


As Visual Studio Express versions do not usually include Microsoft Foundation Class Library (MFC) or Active Template Library (ATL), users may receive an error when building with Express versions of MSVS. The workaround is to either download the Windows Driver Kit that includes the library or use the professional version of MSVS.


Errors of type: fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'AFXWIN.H': No such file or directory


Using VC++ Express Version

Resolving the problem

Use MSVS Professional or download the Windows Driver Kit.
