Have you checked that your g++ compiler installed correctly, i.e. that it can
compiler a test program and finds all used system header files? Normally, ag++
internally runs g++ to determine the compiler configuration (include paths,
built-in macros, etc.). ag++ then passes this information to ac++, which
performs the code transformation. The error messages indicates that a system
header file is not found. This means that you either used ac++ directly (not
ag++) or that your configuration information is wrong. To test the latter, you
can execute "ag++ --gen_config -o myconfig.txt". Check if myconfig.txt looks

Well, I wouldn't recommend it. You would have to create the configuration file
for ac++ manually and then you have to hope that the C++ parser in ac++ can deal
with all the fancy language extensions Microsoft uses in their system header
files. BTW, it makes a big difference whether you use ac++ 1.2 or the daily
build. Version 1.2 is based on the Puma parser, while the daily build ac++ uses
