VS 7.1

If a .cpp file uses more than four differents bimaps the compiler will run out of symbols and issue an internal compiler error. The official solution in msdn is to split the .cpp in several files or upgrade your compiler.

VS 8.0

VC++ 8.0 warns on usage of certain Standard Library and API functions that can be cause buffer overruns or other possible security issues if misused. See http://msdn.microsoft.com/msdnmag/issues/05/05/SafeCandC/default.aspx But the wording of the warning is misleading and unsettling, there are no portable alternative functions, and VC++ 8.0's own libraries use the functions in question. In order to turn off the warnings add the followings defines at the begging of your .cpp files:

#define _CRT_SECURE_NO_DEPRECATE
#define _SCL_SECURE_NO_DEPRECATE
