Visual C++ Configuration for ProToolkit


New member
Hello all.

I am using Visual C++ .Net with Wildfire 2.0

attempting to use the IDE for building my apps.

Just have a stub app right now to test environment

app looks like

extern "C" {

#include <ProName.h>

#include <ProMdl.h>


#include "stdafx.h"

using namespace std;

int _tmain(int argc, char* argv[])


ProName part_name;

ProMdl p_part;

ProError err;

return 0;


I used the following resource

http://www.caddigest.com/subjects/pro_engineer/select/tuto rials/jovanovic_toolkit_environment.htm

to attempt to configure Visual C++. Also download the sample code, will not build.

No Joy.

IDE has issues with things like

d:\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\Vc7\include\cwchar(19): error
C2039: 'fgetwc' : is not a member of 'operator``global namespace'''

So, I removed the entry _WSTDIO_DEFINED from the preprocessor definitions

This fixed the above errors. Don't know what it will break though, anyway...

Now I get :

e:\EDrawingsTranslator\EDrawingsTranslator\EDrawingsTransl ator.cpp(32): error C2065: 'ProName' : undeclared identifier


So, it seems IDE can't see the libraries, includes, or something.

If anyone out there is successfully using Visual C++ .Net with
Wildfire2/ProToolkit and would like to help the community, would you be
able to provide any enlightment ?

Thanks for any help
