Cannot open include file: 'ole2.h'

71 New Member

I am getting the following error:

1>c:\program files\microsoft visual studio 8\vc\include\co mdef.h(24) : fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'ole2.h': No such file or directory
1> This error occurred in injected text:
1>//+++ Start Injected Code
1>#injected_lin e 12 "c:\\users\\adm in\\documents\\ visual studio 2005\\projects\ \vec\\vec\\exce ldriver.hpp"
1>#include <comdef.h>
1>//--- End Injected Code

I would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks.

It looks like you may not have downloaded the Platform SDK. ole2.h should be here on your computer:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\PlatformSD K\Include

This is very common header. I'm surprised it'scaysing you trouble.

Yes, you are right I don't have a Platform SDK under VC. How can I get this? Do I have to reinstall Visual C++ Express?

It's a free download from the Microsoft web site.

When you go to their Download Center, you will see several SDKs to choose from.

Ok, but this seems a little confusing. There seems to be different versions:

Microsoft® Windows Server 2003 SP1 Platform SDK - April 2005 Edition
Microsoft® Windows Server 2003 SP1 Platform SDK - February 2003 Edition

On the website it says: "The last SDK that will work with VC 6.0 is the February 2003 Edition".

However, I am using Microsoft Vista. Is this going to be compatible with February 2003 edition?

Backwards compatibility is not guaranteed. The Platform SDK is really several SDK's (it's broken into sections by major application area) and is updated on a monthly basis. This is for the purpose of bug fixing.

A serious user of the Platform SDK will download it each month to stay current and get the bug fixes.

OK, I have downloaded SDK and integrated it with Visual C++. Now, I get the following error:

fatal error C1083: Cannot open type library file: 'mso9.dll': No such file or directory

I did a Google on mso9.dll and got 30,900 web pages.

Some of these advertized a download.

OK, I have downloaded the mso9.dll and put it under system32 directory. I am not getting that error anymore though the program is still not working. I will post another thread. Thanks.
