Dear sirs and madams,

After a year I will once again dare to upgrade to Visual Studio 2008. Unfortunately, I still have the problem that the error message "can not open include file ’Resources / Resource.rc’" appear.

Under projectname.rc2 you find tihs:



#error this file is not editable by Microsoft Visual C++


#if ( !(defined _AFXDLL && !defined __STATPROFUIS_WITH_DLLMFC__) )

    #include <Resources/Resource.rc>



// Add manually edited resources here...


The Project Properties look like this...


and in the Release Version you find this...

Can you help me?

Your project compiles and runs OK on our computer. Please invoke the Tools | Options menu in your Visual Studio 2008, then select Projects and Solutions | VC++ Directories tree item, then select the Include files combo box item in the Show directories for combo box. The displayed Include folders list should contain the following strings first:


Then you may have several folders related to any newer Platform SDK, DirectX SDI or any other later installed SDK. If any newer SDKs put their include folders before the $(VCInstallDir)include folder, then move their folders to the bottom of the Include folders list.
We also suspect the Visual Studio 2008 may have some Unicode support bugs. If our guess is correct, then you can re-install Prof-UIS into some folder which uses only the English characters in its name and all the parent folder names.

First of all, please check the …/Prof-UIS/Include folder has the Resource subfolder and you can find the …/Prof-UIS/Include/Resources/Resource.h file in it.
Your project settings look like ok.
You can send us a smallest possible test project reproducing the problem to the support mail box at this web site and will check it.
