Link errors while building VC6 project using VC++ Toolkit 2003

P: n/a
I have been trying to use the new Visual C++ Toolkit 2003 with the VC6 IDE
I set up the executable, inlcude, and library directories to point to the new compilers
I had to fix a few errors in the MFC6 <afxtempl.h> to get it to compile with the better standards confomance (mainly omitted typename, and lazyness with specialized templates - using BASE_CLASS & TYPE instead of CObList & CObList*)
Now I get some strange linker errors, and I don't know much about linker errors :-

Here's my linker output (for debug)

How can I fix these?

Looks like you might still be linking with the V6 libraries.

Iīm still having the problem:
error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol __ftol2

Iīve proved to put the next lines of code in my c file:

#if (_MSC_VER >= 1300) && (WINVER < 0x0500)
//VC7 or later, building with pre-VC7 runtime libraries
extern "C" long _ftol( double ); //defined by VC6 C libs
extern "C" long _ftol2( double dblSource ) { return _ftol( dblSource );
}
#endif

but now the problem is the string "C", it isnīt recognized by the
compiler maybe. Iīve installed the microsotf c++ 2003 toolkit.
I donīt understand.

Hi alixia!
#if (_MSC_VER >= 1300) && (WINVER < 0x0500)
//VC7 or later, building with pre-VC7 runtime libraries
extern "C" long _ftol( double ); //defined by VC6 C libs
extern "C" long _ftol2( double dblSource ) { return _ftol( dblSource );
}
#endif

but now the problem is the string "C", it isnīt recognized by the
compiler maybe. Iīve installed the microsotf c++ 2003 toolkit.

Why do you query WINVER?
If it is only depended on the MS-VC-Version you should only query _MSC_VER!

But to comply with C-files, you should change it to:
#if _MSC_VER >= 1300
//VC7 or later, building with pre-VC7 runtime libraries
#ifdef __cplusplus
extern "C" {
#endif
long _ftol( double ); //defined by VC6 C libs
long _ftol2( double dblSource ) { return _ftol( dblSource );
#ifdef __cplusplus
}
#endif
#endif
