Hi guys,

I know this seems to be a fairly common problem, but I've tried pretty much everything the other posts say, as well as some other "googled" solutions. I also snagged the Platform SDK, and DirectX SDK as suggested in your dshow_header.h comments. I added those to the include directories to no avail. Thus I still get the classic:
Error 26 fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'DShow.h': No such file or directory

I know for a fact that it's in the Platform SDK directory because i can see it there, but for some reason it still doesn't find it. Here's my include directories:

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft DirectX SDK (March 2008)\Include"
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Platform SDK\Include"
"C:\Program Files\The Imaging Source Europe GmbH\IC Imaging Control 3.0\classlib\include"

Am I missing something glaring?

Cheers,
jeff

Jeff,

did you add the directory "C:\Program Files\Microsoft DirectX SDK (March 2008)\Include" in the include files list of your Visual Studio:
Menu "Tools" -> Options -> Projects and Solutions -> VC++ Directories ?

Hi Stefan,

I tried adding the DirectX SDK to the Visual Studio Include list, and that didn't work. Interesting enough, I then added the Platform SDK to that list, and viola, it works. I actually thought that the project include directories performed the same function except on just the project scale instead of all projects. I guess that's not the case.
