Building Issues

Recommended Posts


I am trying to use the FSUIPC SDK, but I have some building errors.

fsuipc_user.h(45) : error C2146: syntax error : missing ';' before identifier 'FSUIPC_Open'

fsuipc_user.h(45) : fatal error C1004: unexpected end of file found

line implied is (in fsuipc_user.h):

extern DWORD FSUIPC_Version;

After a quick search on the forum, I was not able to find anything.

I suspect Visual C++ 6 is considering DWORD as an "identifier" and not a type.

You probably encountered this problem before, but like I said, I was not able to find a topic about it.

Thank you for your time!

I suspect Visual C++ 6 is considering DWORD as an "identifier" and not a type.

Don't you have the standard Windows header defined before the FSUIPC header? There are many things dependent upon Windows-defined names and APIs. Very little (nothing) is predefined in the compiler for Windows.

DWORD is one of the many types defiined for all Windows programs, like BYTE, BOOL, WORD. WPARAM, LPARAM, and so on. These are used in many Windows APIs. How are you trying to write a Windows program without the Windows header being included?

Maybe it is just that you are trying to include Windows-dependent parts before declaring the Windows header?

Looks like that was it!

Sorry, that is my first big program in C language, I am not used to basic things like this one.

Thanks for the answer. Now that I have included the right header, I get another error, but it is in a Visual C header. I'll deal with that one !
