QuoteOriginally posted by: outrunI picked a "C++ console project without precompiled headers", but it's not C++ and it has precompiled headers, ... Pure crap, who would design something like that???nothing to do with C++, it's the IDE1. Console project2. Application settings -> empty project3. project settings -> C++ -> No precompiled header check box.4. Add cpp to project5. 6. See the VS screen shot.
