Are you trying to compile as C++ and not C? I think that VC++ makes that
assumption based on the file extension. I've never tried VC Express.


In any case

int c;
c = 0;

is valid C++ anywhere, but it is only valid in C at the beginning of a block.

in C++ you could do:

void func(void) {
  int x;
  x = 0;
  int c;
  c = 0;
}


but in C you'd have to rewite it something like this:

void func(void) {
  int x;
  int c;
  x = 0;
  c = 0;
}

to get it to compile.
