#include <Windows.h> error

Post by jojoblafir » Wed Oct 14, 2020 8:02 am

Hey guys,

I'm currently a student in a course that studies the base of C++ programming and I'm new to this so sorry if my question seems silly for some of you..

And just to be the clearest possible, we're using CodeLite 14.0,2 with TDM64-GCC-9.2.0 as our compiler.

So here's my question:

I have a lab about 2D graphics (with DirectX Windows) as an assignment in my course and I learned that you have to include <Windows.h> and "2D_graphics.h" (with of course the basic one's like <iostream> and <cstdio> and <cmath>) at the start of my program.

So that's what I did and followed the rest of the instructions to do my lab correctly.

But when I try to build and run the program it keeps on saying that <Windows.h> is an error....(I kept the DirectX window always opened in the same time)

I tried every thing to fix it like changing the < > for "" , uninstalling CodeLite and TDM and downloading them again and even downloading SDK Windows (I saw on another forum that I had to try it with this so I download it but still nothing!!).

So I really don't know what's the issue here and I have to get that lab done ASAP so any kind of help would be appreciated.

I joined a screenshot of my program but in case, it doesn't work here's the error message I get from CodeLite:

For <Windows.h> :

In included file: definition of builtin function '__rdtsc' C:\TDM-GCC-64_2\lib\gcc\x86_64-w64-mingw32\9.2.0\include\ia32intrin.h:112:1:note: error occurred here

You can ignore this.
It's coming from the code completion engine (clangd).
This won't affect you
Make sure you have read the HOW TO POST thread

Ok thanks but isn’t there a way to fix this error?
Because I would like to actually see my program running so that I’m sure the output is similar to my assignment instructions:(
