Compiling resource files with Visual Studio Express

If you pick a Visual Studio project with an MFC GUI app, and try to compile it with Visual Studio Express, you should run into the error:
fatal error RC1050: Cannot open include file 'afxres.h'.
The solution? Replace your:
#include "afxres.h"
from your .rc file with the following:
#include <windows.h>
#define IDC_STATIC -1
