I am porting legacy code from Visual Studio C++ version 6 to 2005 .Net and i would like to know how do I view the external source dependancies in the solution explorer as you can in VS 6 These are usually header files that are declared in a C++ module but not part of the header folder of the project. I've looked all over the IDE / help to no avail, can anyone help me

Thanks in advance!

Sahir,

This does not explain anything; only shows you how to open the file that is external. I want to see all files in the soluction explorer that are external to the project like you can in VS6. I did notice that in the status the following is referenced:

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
I find it hard to belive that this is a bug!

Bite Qiu - MSFT

It is not available from Solution Explorer(as the kb article implies), but you can view all external dependencies during compile time by set "Show Includes" switch to "Yes (/showIncludes)", this switch is contained in "Advanced" page of "C/C++" folder in your project's "Property Pages" dialog.

Simple Samples

I have used VC 6 a lot and still do. As best as I know, it is not consistent in catching all #includes.

When you say "header files that are declared in a C++ module" I assume you mean used instead of declared.
