So you can open your project with VC6, but you can't debug it? Or can you not open the project at all?
I still use VC6 on a Windows 7 machine for one of my main projects still today and it works just fine. When I initially put it on that machine 5+ years ago, I had to tweak some files to get it going (because it was 64-bit), but it has run fine ever since.

I can run my small program called Notebook, and I can set compatibility for notebook.exe, but not notebook.dsw. It is presently a dialog box that asks a Question, and then provides the Answer.
I cannot use the debug folder to run debug.
I cannot rebuild.
I cannot compile.
I think it is just not compatible with Windows 7 Professional.
I am considering putting Windows XP SP3 in a VM, and running it there.
Mainly, I just wanted to see my original written form of Visual C++ 6.0 coding.
Then I can add Rich Text Format to the text entered.
Later on, I want to add vector graphic calculations to the result.
I am not sure I am using the CodeProject System correctly!
Am I expected to give an up or down vote with the red and green triangles?
I am using Visual Studio 6.0. The dsw file just brings up the program in workbook form.
I can only go into Properties from Notebook.exe for XP Compatibility plus Run as Admin, and that is not helping me to get the coding I want to look at. I want to add RTF to my text, and later graphics in the Answer section.
The Notebook program was written in Visual C++ but mostly C++.
It is a simple Q & A dialog box I programmed for study questions and answers.
I wrote that program in Feb. 2004, and I am now retired, so I want to get back to learning.
I have a considerable investment in the VCPP6 and VB6 library volumes.
I want to stay with VS6 because the programs will be only for me, and I do not intend to write many.
I can see the compiled code, but I cannot regenerate my original write-up code from that!
If I run the debug there is supposed to be a way to make a file that tracks my code, but that is during the original compile and debug process. Only Windows XP is compatible with my program.
I have Windows 7 Pro now on my HP Pavilion 515n 32-bit computer and running compile, rebuild, or debug just destroys the program. Fortunately I keep backups of Notebook. It runs fine on Win7, but not much use to understand my original write-up code way back then!
I mainly use the 32-bit to backup my Palm Pilot monthly and run a free-space drive wipe after.
Don't worry, I have an HP ENVY 700-210xt SSD 64-bit on Windows 10, but free-space wipe on it would be write steps that burn SSD life (read is fine, but not write). Also, I want to keep my programming mess away from the 64-bit computer.
I am currently looking into using a VM with Windows XP inside to run my program with all functions.
The function I need to implement is to first select a row in the ListControl, and then press the "Import" button, the program will import the file corresponding to the pre-set corresponding path of this row.
I have written an import function, just need to provide the path and name corresponding to the file you want to import.
The problem is that I don't know how to match the selected line with the pre-set path and file, because there are too many files and paths (at least 20) to be set in advance, and listcontrol has the same number of lines and files as the number of files.
The point of my problem is that I don't know how to get the number of any selected row to associate it with the corresponding path and file.
All I know is to associate any row selected by the ListControl with only one of the specified paths and files.
Among them, the "LoadRbt" function only needs to provide two parameters.
The debugging result of this code is that no matter which line is selected, the same file will be imported (the rbt file is a file I customize).
How can I select different lines and import different files?
wow,thank you for your advice!I will try later!
I tried to solve the problem myself by means of using "CStringArray".But it fails when I debug and I do not know the reason.Would you please tell me the bug?
Here are the addition codes:
I keep running into snags using Linux "autotools " generated code.
Would this work?
1. Build required C++ library on host architecture and link it to the "build" system?
I am successfully using Target Communication Framework - Agent - to "connect" from build system to host . Uses TCP.
I used "post-processing" long time ago and I was thinking if that or pre-processing could be used to "add" the library link before the main process is done. Just a thought.
I do not know to to "link" across network during program compilation / linking.
2. Could I just import / copy the correct architecture library from the host system to build system and just link it normally?
I am going to try "scp" Linux command to copy the C++ library from the host to build system.
Is there anything special why this "scp" copy would not work?
Used option 2 - scp /rcp to copy library build on ARM system to similar folder on X86.
Linked to it the usual way. Linker accepted the file format , no problems.
Test run on ARM "host" and works as expected.
It is not clear what the actual problem is, and why you cannot build the library in the same way that you build the rest of the system. Linking a library to an application should work if both sides have been built to the same target architecture.
