problem with ... const char [10]' to 'LPCTSTR'

unic_studentunic_student Member Posts: 2
i am new to MFC programming, i have to create a simple GUI interface and was attempting a tutorial from a lecturer but it is not working...
it keeps coming up with an error -
'CFrameWnd::Create' : cannot convert parameter 2 from 'const char [10]' to 'LPCTSTR'

this is my code
[code]
//this is the file lab9.cpp
#include "C:Documents and SettingsAdministratorMy DocumentsMFClab9lab9.h"

//define our window constructor
COurWin::COurWin()
{
//Call CframWnd's creator() function
Create(NULL, "my_window");
}

BOOL COurApp::InitInstance()
{
m_pMainWnd = new COurWin;
m_pMainWnd->ShowWindow(m_nCmdShow);
m_pMainWnd->UpdateWindow();
return TRUE;
}

BEGIN_MESSAGE_MAP(COurWin, CFrameWnd)
END_MESSAGE_MAP()

COurApp App;
[/code]

this is my header file
[code]
// This is the file lab9.h
// Include standard windows functions and classes
#include
// We always derive classes from the main MFC classes
// Derive main window class

class COurWin:public CFrameWnd
{
// We shall want control over construction
public:
COurWin();

// We must declare the message map - no semi-colon
DECLARE_MESSAGE_MAP()
};

// Derive application class
class COurApp : public CWinApp
{
// We need to override InitInstance()
BOOL InitInstance();
};
[/code]

can anyone give any answers to why it is creating this error!!
and i would ask my lecturer but h is away for a week and i need this assignment started

cheers
