Question "Add Variable" - Chap 14

When I try to do things the 'easy' way, I'm always getting into trouble! Fpr instance, when trying to add a variable, I right-click on Form1 (Chap 14, p 839) and then click on "Add Variable". What happens is that Internet Explorer comes up (!) with an error message.

I have no idea why IE is invoked (it's not even my default browser), so I ended up adding things manually. BTW, I've upgraded to IE 8 ... could that be a problem?

Thanks for any thoughts!

Default Add Variable

Art,

Like you, I am unable to "Add Variable" as described on page 839. I eventually gave up and did it manually by peaking at the chapter 14 code downloads for guidance.

However I don't have the problem you have with IE8 popping up. I'm thinking my problems are because I'm using the express edition. You? For me, the option to Add / Add Variable is simply not available in the pop-up I get after right clicking on Form1.h in Class View.

Hi Ken -

Thanks for the quick reply. I, too, was using an Express edition (the price was right!) but wanted to learn how to play with MFC, too. So I bit the bullet and actually bought a copy of Visual Studio. No regrets, so far.

I bought the Standard Edition of Visual Studio from Amazon. If I recall correctly, the total was about $172 (USD).
