People are having trouble finding feature pack samples installed in the samples directory. I too had a similar problem. So what you need to do is to uninstall the previous sample exe that you’ve installed. Then install the samples from here. Good thing about this is that you’ll have an updated samples package.

If you’re still having problems, I’ve uploaded them for you to my blog, please rename this file to zip after downloading or save as zip.

Finally good news for MFC developers as Microsoft has made Visual C++ 2008 Libraries Extension Feature Pack Final Release!

Available for download here. Informative video by Stephen T. Lavavej on TR1 release is here.

I’m back in business, hip hip hurray! 😀

Some classes in TR1 that I am working on…

  • shared_ptr – The most useful feature in TR1.
    Manages pointers via reference counting, as the name says the pointer is shared among different instances of shared_ptr objects. As one object goes out of scope it destroys itself reducing reference count, so as the last object is destroyed the pointer itself gets destroyed since reference count then becomes zero. Much like COM AddRef and Release.

Will add more as I get time!
