VC++ Time functions

VC++ Time functions

VC++ Time functions


I have created a console app in VC++ and I want to display the current time using the following code:

#include "stdafx.h"
#include <Afxdisp.h>
#include <iostream.h>

int main()
COleDateTime Date_Time;
Date_Time = COleDateTime::GetCurrentTime();
cout << Date_Time.Format("Today is %a %b %d, %y");

return 0;

However when I run it I get the following errors:

nafxcwd.lib(thrdcore.obj) : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol __endthreadex

nafxcwd.lib(thrdcore.obj) : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol __beginthreadex

Anyone have any ideas?


RE: VC++ Time functions

Dear Smilee,

It would appear that you don't have the MFC library linked into your project.

If you have VC.6 there should be an "MFC Console" application wizard that will set the project up for you.

Hope this helps
