Building a project with Visual C++ 1.0 generates the following unresolved link error for __doserrno:
Under Visual C++ 2.0 and 2.1, the following error is generated:
NOTE: This behavior does not occur in MFC 4.0 included with Visual C++ version 4.0 as MFC 4.0 supports multithreaded applications by default.
This error may be caused by compiling an application with /MT or /MD (multithreaded options) and linking with the default versions of the Microsoft Foundation Class (MFC) libraries. The default versions of the MFC libraries were not built with the multithreaded C run-time library, which results in the above error.
The MFC Libraries do not support calling MFC code from any thread other than the primary thread. You can make calls to the MFC libraries or global AFX helper functions only from the primary thread.
The README.WRI file (installed by default in the \MSVCNT\ directory) describes how to remedy this problem. There are two possible solutions:
Rebuild a custom version of the MFC libraries with /MT or /MD defined. For information on building libraries, see the section "Using the New Run-Time Libraries" on page xx-xxi in the "Class Library Reference" manual. (Note that the README.WRI incorrectly references this section as the "Class Library User's Guide.")
For example, to build the library NAFXCWD.LIB, use following the command:
NMAKE DEBUG=1 TARGET=W OPT="/MT" CODEVIEW=1
- Rebuild the application using the single-threaded run-time library LIBC.LIB. To select the single-threaded run-time library, choose the Runtime category in the C/C++ Compiler Options dialog box.
