I struggled with this all day. VS Express does not allow the user to get the add-on to be able to code this project in MBCS. The error first occurred on Day 2.
WindowClass.lpszClassName = ("HandmadeHeroWindowClass");
Error is looking for a value and instead the field is text. I almost gave up. The pay for version of VS is too expensive to consider buying just to do this project. I opted to include tchar.h and preceded the two occurrences of text with _t(). That was the only change and now it's working. I have the Window. I do not know how much a problem this will be as I go along so anyone that has encountered this and knows a better way I would like to hear from you. I see the game is about to be released but I want to do this myself so I'm a late starter. Didn't find this on you tube until a week ago.I just want to know if I'll be able to finish this with Express instead of the full VS 2015 at 45 dollars a month.
