I'm new to the C++ REST SDK and I've been following the Http Client Tutorial ( I've installed Casablanca 2.0.1, and I've tried the bingrequest.cpp from the source code and I keep getting an error saying that:

IntelliSense: class "Concurrency::streams::basic_istream<uint8_t>" has no member "read_to_end"
IntelliSense: cannot open source file "boost/algorithm/string/predicate.hpp"

and a series of,

IntelliSense: identifier "utf16char" is undefined.

I've been trying to find an answer - but I can't seem to find any on the discussions. Please advise.


P.S. I'm using Visual Studio 2013.

Example usage. This compiles ok. I'm not sure if it's logically correct.
    web::http::http_response response(web::http::status_codes::OK);

Ok - I've managed to run the tutorial now. The tutorial works. Part of the reason why mine didn't work was because I forgot to install Boost and also in Visual Studio 2013, I had selected New Project > General > Empty Project instead of New Project > Win32 > Win32 Console Application.

Thanks for all the help!

Hi awong,

We've fixed up the issue with empty projects now in our development branch. You shouldn't have any problems any more. We were checking a wrong macro before.
