    (//There are many similar problems,I omit them)
    rmshadow.exe - 131 error(s), 0 warning(s)

    I think my environment is not right.
    Can you tell me how I can do in VC++?
    ::My machine is DELL OptiPlex GX110
    ::My system operation:Windows XP(my friend's is windows 2000, but he has the same problem with me)
    ::My Tools: VC++6.0
    Thank you.Happy new year!!!

    There are a few existing problems with this article/demo that should be fixed before it's posted:

    - Memory leak : these demos should *not* harm a programmer's development tools. Having VS crash as a result of installing this template (even if you are not using it) is a big no-no.

    - Adding stdafx.h : Maybe the /Yu stdafx.h flag should be turned off if you're going to do this.

    - Adding "d3dapp.cpp, dxutil.cpp and d3dutil.cpp to your project after creation". I'd be curious to see if there is a way to automate this in the appwizard as well as adding the include path for "d3dapp.h, dxutil.hand d3dutil.h" as well.

    For what this does and doesn't do, I wouldn't call it an App Wizard...more like an "App Apprentice". It really just copies a set of renamed files (with renamed classes) to the directory specified. Nothing more.

  • Great Idea but Possibly Leaky
