Items in this page:

 

  1. Installing the Windows PSDK for Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition.

 

 

  • Well, just click the Back button until you reach the previous Select An Installation Type dialog because we are going to use the Typical installation type. Re-select the Typical radio button and then click the Next button.

  • Next, launch your VC++ 2005 Express Edition. We need to update the Visual C++ directories in the Projects and Solutions section in the Options dialog box. In a simple word, we need to tell the compiler where to find those includes, libraries and executable files that required when we build programs that specific to Windows.

  • We need to add the paths to the appropriate subsections as listed below:

  1. Executable files: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Platform SDK for Windows Server 2003 R2\Bin

  2. Include files: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Platform SDK for Windows Server 2003 R2\Include

  3. Library files: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Platform SDK for Windows Server 2003 R2\Lib

  • Note: Alternatively, you can update the Visual C++ Directories by modifying the VCProjectEngine.dll.express.config file located in the \vc\vcpackages subdirectory of the Visual C++ Express install location. Please make sure that you also delete the file "vccomponents.dat" located in the "%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\VCExpress\8.0" if it exists before restarting Visual C++ Express Edition.

  • In our case, select Tools Options menu.
