Hey everyone,

I've been following the Winelib User Guide in order to compile an old Visual Studio C++ game. The code is from about 1999, fyi.

I'm using winemaker to create my Makefile, like so:
    winemaker --lower-uppercase --mfc "Kipdola.dsp"

This seems to work fine, but when I try to `make` it I get this error:
    stdafx.h:14:10: fatal error: afxwin.h: No such file or directory
    #include <afxwin.h>

`stdafx.h` is a file in my project's folder, and it then tries to include `afxwin.h` (which I assume is an MFC file), but fails.

The guide isn't entirely clear on where these files should come from, but after some googling I came to realize I had to supply these myself in some way. So I installed Vistual Studio 6 in my main `.wine` prefix.

This didn't really help, though. I still get the same error.

I see the Makefile has this declaration in the "Common settings" section:

I don't think this `MFC_INCLUDE_PATH` has been defined anywhere, so I tried to compile it like this:
    MFC_INCLUDE_PATH=/home/skerit/VC98/MFC/INCLUDE/ make

But I still got the same error. (And yes, I also ran `winemaker` in THAT include folder, as all files were uppercased)
I also tried to change the include statement to `#include "afxwin.h"`, but that also did nothing.

So does anyone know where it's going wrong and what I can do to fix it?

Btw: I don't know how old the content of that guide is. It initially directed me to ask for help on the mailing list, which I did. Only afterwards I saw that that mailing list is NOT for bug reports or user support questions.
