    Hi All,

    I tried building the devcon code that is part of the WDK under WDK_ROOT
    but its missing two files msg.h and msg.rc

    anyone can point me to where I can find these files?

    Thanks in advance!

    First, terminate any Visual Studio program running. Do not run it again.
    This is the WDK and not some gui program. GUI is barely supported and
    should be avoided like any fatal disease.

    Click the start button. Then select 'All Programs', 'Windows Driver Kits',
    'WDK 6000', 'Build Environments', 'Windows Vista and Windows Server
    Longhorn', 'Windows Vista and Windows Server Longhorn x86 Checked Build
    Environment' to create a CMD window. Then CD into the devcon directory.
    Type 'build -ceZ' and some magic should occur and the files will appear

    The magic is, I assume, that BUILD will run the message compiler on a file?

    I didn't want to overload him with too much information since he doesn't
    seem to want to try the samples using the standard methods much less read
    the docs.
