Then again I created a new project but this time I did not linked it to any library file. It's worth noting that precompiled headers are completely worthless unless you are seeing slow compile times. The file name usually coincides with the project name, but you can naturally change this and any other names used, in the settings. So, if I include right path to stdafx. So if you have 100 cpp files in your project and they all include the same header, that header is being compiled 100 times. Everything can look strange and complicated in an unfamiliar environment, and novices are especially irritated by the stdafx.
We wrote this article to help Visual Studio newcomers to figure it all out. The problem is that the precompiled file quickly becomes that hugh that navigating within is not faster then opening and parsing the headers when needed. Both with and without them, the program seems to take the same time to compile. Do you have any ideas? You can precompile any header, even library headers like. This can be beneficial to other community members reading this thread.
But don't be too fanatical about non-changing files. I see you're used to build on Visual Studio 2013 image. Secondly: it's inadvisable to include the precompiled header in your own headers, to not clutter namespace of other source that can use your code as a library, so completely remove its inclusion in vector. Like Thanks for your great explanation. Recently I have faced the problem with Intellisense performance in Visual Studio 2012 for C++ , caused by Precompiled Headers feature being disabled. Perhaps there are some other reasons too. So I don't understand what should be the next step.
First, we instructed Visual Studio to use a precompiled header for our project in its preferences. Completely recompiling the entire project 2 or 3 times is quite an unpleasant thing, isn't it? There appeared a MessageBox with full of strange characters upto 7th line, and in 8th line there were few of them. This method is not a universal one, but it did help me in many cases. So I could send you those files. So I will try myself to compile with 2008 first. I just pushed a patch to change the project to use Visual Studio 2013 and now it builds again.

Everything looks strange and complicated in an unfamiliar environment, and novices are especially irritated by the stdafx. Personally I have faced this issue only 2 or 3 times during the many years of my career. Do you find any clue from here.
Thx Rashidul Hi Joe Thanks for your valuable feedbacks and important suggestions. In this case, the squiggle parser fails to find stdafx. It looks like an Intellisense bug. This delusion may last for years. Hello Yes I have created empty 'Win32 Project'. When I compiled this program from C++ Programming Language 4th edition : main.
In the end we had to deal with virtual memory limit using the -Zm command line option. Hi Joe Can you plz give me your email address? To me, this is disappointing as an evaluation tool. Thx Rashidul Just remove that line from your definition file. Then I think it will be easier for you to debug because I have tried with different ways in different times and the current error is different than lib17 problem. Lastly, Precompiled Header Output File stores the path to the actual precompiled header file, which allows for faster compilation.
The amount of work the preprocessor has to do during project compilation can be greatly reduced. But it is possible, and you should be aware of it. Something strange going on You may sometimes come across an issue when an error doesn't disappear even after fixing the code. The compiler will walk through, examine, and compile that header whenever you compile the cpp file. This said, in the above guide I might have misrepresented something and given advice which is far from best practice.
If this is the case, it will not load in any version below 2010 Map 2009. Configuration 'Debug Win32': changing Platform Toolset to 'v120' was 'v100'. This can be beneficial to other community members reading this thread. It can be solved by complete full project recompilation. Including won't make sense if you need it in just a couple of files. Another way is to use Forced Included File. However dispite this the project builds and runs without any problem, so the compiler can find the precompiled header, but Intellisense cannot! There are two ways to solve this issue.
Do I just copy-and-paste the source code and manually stick it in there? I guess you created empty 'Win32 Project' and added other files. I would try it but the file is to big for me to download. Or you could have included an auto-generated file by mistake. This is not an official translation and may contain errors and inaccurate translations. It might have been caused by some faults related to the time of file modification. You now have an stdafx.
