Microsoft Windows SDK Blog

The Microsoft Windows SDK is a set of tools, code samples, documentation, compilers, headers, and libraries that developers can use to create applications that run on Microsoft Windows operating systems. The Windows SDK combines two formerly separate SDKs

If you're using the Windows SDK and Visual Studio 2008, you may have stumbled across a few unmanaged samples that don't build.   You may see one of these errors:

 

fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'mspbase.h': No such file or directory. 

fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: Mtype.h': No such file or directory. 

fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: ‘mfc80ud.lib’: No such file or directory. 

 

Some unmanaged samples rely on mspbase.h, mtype.h, or mfc80ud.lib.  These files are included with Visual Studio 2005 and do not ship with Visual Studio 2008. 

 

Require Mspbase.h:
netds\Tapi\Tapi3\Cpp\Msp\MSPBase
netds\Tapi\Tapi3\Cpp\Msp\Sample
netds\Tapi\Tapi3\Cpp\pluggable

 

Require Mtype.h:
netds\Tapi\Tapi3\Cpp\tapirecv
netds\Tapi\Tapi3\Cpp\tapisend

 

Require mfc80ud.lib
Sysmgmt\Wmi\VC\AdvClient
