precompiled headers - how to get rid of them


i have a simple hello world win32 console application. it should work but
there is an error. here is the most important part of the error:

have you forgotten to add #include <stdfx.h> to your source code?

stdfx.h is a precompiled header and i have deleted it but vc++ still asks me
to include it. how do i change the precompiled header setting?

Choose Properties from the Project menu item. Open up the C++ 'folder'.
Select the 'Precompiled Headers' item beneath it. In the first of the three
combo boxes to the right select 'Not Using Precompiled Headers'.

Hi, Now that GCC 3.4 has precompiled headers, I'm thinking I can stop using pimpls to speed up development time, as it may make life easier (declaring pimpls takes a long time...) What are the views of the experienced users of various C++ implementations? Do precompiled headers allow pimpls to be avoided while maintaining the same speed up of development time?

Several C++ compilers now allow precompiled headers, supposedly as a compile-time optimization.

Is there anyway to share a single pch file between projects in VC 7.0? I have 300+ projects each of which creates its own pch. All projects include the exact same header files in the precompiled header. Its takes about 7 seconds to create the precompiled header for each project. That's 35 minutes spent creating precompiled headers for all project! All of the projects use PDB files for debug info. I tried creating Precomp.pch in project...

Hi All, I was wondering if it is possible to use precompiled headers without having to include a <stdafx.h> or whatever in every source file. My problem is that I have a project that makes heavy usage of a large third party library which means after pre-processing each translation unit is around 1meg in size. There are reasons though why I cannot use the standard approach to precompiled headers. What I would like to do is somthing like...

Is it possible to avoid using precompiled headers on files that don't #include "stdafx.h". I have an ATL project,which has got a lot of ATL #includes in its stdafx.h. I now need to add some .c files to this project, that compile as hard raw C - not C++. The .c files obviously won't understand the <atlbase.h> etc that are in the stdafx.h. But if I leave the precompiled headers switch on, it complains that fatal end of file was found...

Having troubles with my program and i believe it has something to do with my project settings for precompiled headers.

I am working on a test migration of our project to Visual Studio 2005 Beta 2 as a precursor to the availability of the full release of VS2005.

(Whilst it does not affect my problem - I would dearly like to know why this...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
