AfxMessageBox

Hi,

I'm trying to get a basic MDI program working.
I create the template through Microsoft Visual Studio 2005, and then
before changing any code i run the program. But it doesn't actually run
it has a AfxMessageBox error.

I've tried the MSDN and other forums but no one has been able to help
me any ideas?

Here is the code that is bugging up:
----ERROR----
1>c:\documents and settings\sketcher\sketcher\sketcher.cpp(62) : error
C3861: 'AfxMessageBox': identifier not found

----CODE----
CWinApp::InitInstance();

// Initialize OLE libraries
if (!AfxOleInit())
{
AfxMessageBox(IDP_OLE_INIT_FAILED);
return FALSE;
}
AfxEnableControlContainer();

What is an AfxMessageBox error? We know of compiler errors or linker
errors, but I've never seen an AfxMessageBox error.

What about microsoft.public.vc.language or
microsoft.public.vc.mfc? I found your posting in neither of these (where
they belong).

[I know I'm being off-topic, but I think I rebuked the poster proper and
good enough above] Well, you have to include the header that defines
AfxMessageBox. For me this is afxwin.h, but I'm using VC6.0, so this
header may be different under VC7.1.

I feel sympathise with you in respect of the fact that code generated
from some wizard seems to be not in a condition as to compile properly.
That's Microsoft for you.

Stuart
