Header files missing - Help

For some time now, other teachers have had this problem. Visual C++ 6.0 was
once installed on a WIN98 platform and apstring.h and graphic.h worked.
However, since moving to WIN2000 and WINXP, these header files are missing.

Where can I find these header files?? I have tried to create these headers
over again, even CUT/PASTE, however, I most not be doing something right.

Help here would be very appreciated.

From my understanding those files are only "required" by DOS or Win9x
machines - WinNT OS's (NT, 2k, XP) won't have those installed by default.
I've just checked both my WinXP Pro and Win2k3 Server machines (have VS 6.0
and VS.NET 03 installed) and neither have either of these files.

Okay, so what actions should I take?? I am teaching a HS class C++ using
VSC++ and in this program it calls for graphics.h and conic.h and dice.h
header files.

It will not still run, so do I need to make my own header or what??

These header files are not now, nor have they ever been part of Visual C++
(including VC6).

It sounds like you're using course materials that were designed from
something like Turbo C++ for DOS. If that's the case, you'll simply need to
update your curriculum. There's no tractable way to get DOS graphics
examples to compile with Visual C++. Ironically, if you had an old enough
development environment to compile them, the resulting programs would
probably run on Windows XP just fine.

You know everyone here is correct. This is not the first set of headers that
I wil be needing this year. Its my first year teaching this class though and
its been hetic to say the least.

If I am not mistaken, this is the last year of C++ on the ciricumlum.
Hopefully it will be replaced with Java if the school system is smart.
uhmm...wait that requires thought and consideration. It doesn't pertain to
the sports. lol

Thanks again for the help.

In the past there have been lengthy discussiions regarding the role of header files in C++. People have been very adamat about header files serving as in interface to the implementation. I do understand the objective. This example may represent an interface in need of a bit of refactoring, but it goes to demonstrate the basic idea as I understand it. http://developer.kde.org/documentation/library/cvs-api/kdevelop/html/ast_8h-source.html...

Missing Help Files When I enter "recordset" as the keyword and search the Visual Basic Help index, I get many topics of interest in the resulting list.
