How to include stdafx.h conditionally?

Don't try it as that's not possible!

If you try to put #include "stdafx.h" between #ifdef and #endif, you'll end up with error C1020: unexpected #endif. You need to include stdafx.h at the beginning of any source file in your project, apart from those files for which using precompiled headers is turned off.

There is one situation where this feature - setting using precompiled headers at the file level - comes very handy. Let's say we have some code file which does not include stdafx.h and we need to share it between project which uses precompiled headers - P1, and project which doesn't - P2. If we add that file to P1, this project won't compile  - compiler will complain with fatal error C1010: unexpected end of file while looking for precompiled header. We cannot include stdafx.h at the beginning of that file either as then P2 won't compile - it does not have stdafx.h. The only solution is to turn off using precompiled headers for that particular file.

BE SMART AND BECOME RICH IN LESS THAN 3DAYS....It all depends on how fast 
you can be to get the new PROGRAMMED blank ATM card that is capable of
hacking into any ATM machine,anywhere in the world. I got to know about 
this BLANK ATM CARD when I was searching for job online about a month 
ago..It has really changed my life for good and now I can say I'm rich and 
I can never be poor again. The least money I get in a day with it is about 
$50,000.(fifty thousand USD) Every now and then I keeping pumping money 
into my account. Though is illegal,there is no risk of being caught 
,because it has been programmed in such a way that it is not traceable,it 
also has a technique that makes it impossible for the CCTVs to detect 
you..For details on how to get yours today, email the hackers on : ( ). Tell your 
loved once too, and start to live large. That's the simple testimony of how 
my life changed for good...Love you all ...the email address again is ;
