Am currently following the tutorial for a basic volume control. However, whenever I select rebuild it says that the rebuild failed.

In visual studio there are 473 errors. Such as: cannot open source file "corecrt.h" , the global scope has no “logf” , and identifier “UINT” is undefined. I have very little experience with C-sharp, so I have no idea what any of this means.

I have selected the devenv.exe file through preferences in RackAFX and went into visual studio to set up the “Build.RebuildSolution” to be assigned to Ctrl + Alt + F7.

Am I missing something? Any help would be much apricated.

Running on:

Windows 10 Pro

Latest version of RackAFX

Visual Studio 2017


Thanks, Callum.

C sharp?


This is c++ . have you downloaded C++ for Visual studio? 


You might be better doing a C++ starter coarse if you never used it before 

Bucky below does a good few vids with code blocks as a  starting point.

Thanks for your reply Eddie, and sorry I meant C++ in my previous post!


So I installed visual studio 2015 and this fixed the issue I has having with the volume.cpp file having loads of errors. I then changed RackAFX back to visual studio 2017 version and it now works fine. Really not sure what I had done wrong, but anyone with similar issues I would recommend trying the 2015 version of visual studio.
