Thanks for the warnings! I am still in the C++ and MFC world although we are slowly moving away from MFC. We will not be moving from C++ though.

Anyway, I haven't created a new project in many years. I had nothing but problems the last times I did so I just stopped trying. Now I have a few sample projects I always copy and adjust. Mostly because I have them set up with all the targets for 32/64-bit mode, MBCS/Unicode, Static/Dynamic RTLs, and Debug/Release builds - all 16 combinations of those options. I have never figured how to do that in the IDE so I just don't bother. I find it easier to copy, rename, and edit than to it is deal with that stuff in the IDE. They still have some things broken when I try to sort out debug file output options. There again, I don't bother - hand editing saves the day. It is cumbersome but at least it works. That's what annoys me the most : I try to do stuff in the IDE and it breaks things in the project file. Eventually, I figured how to do them by hand and I stopped wasting my time in the IDE on that kind of thing.
