emacs msvc ask for cpp file location
Hi there! I'm in a hold after episode 40something and I've started to code by myself all the stuff we did more or less using just msdn so that I can check what my actual undestanding is....
I'm using the same environment as in the show(emacs + msvc by build.bat), everything is working fine but when I got compile errors and I jump to the line the compiler ask me for the cpp file location and I'm not sure how to solve this... it's really annoying..

The new project is just a new folder with the same structure, like the one I use to follow the show, I modified the build.bat and created a new cpp file other than that it builds ok.

Any ideas?
cheers

emacs msvc ask for cpp file location
How are filenames displayed in error messages? Do they have absolute paths or relative? Casey is passing /FC flag for compiler to make it produce absolute path in error message. Are you doing the same?

Thanks mmozeiko!! You are right, I needed to add the /FC compiler flag, I deleted lots of them since I was starting from scratch, anyway now it is working fine, I just get a strange message like: "x:\whatever\something.cpp and x:\whatever\something.cpp are the same file" but just the first line, then it goes away...
Not that this is important, but there's a way to get rid of that?
