Having investigated this further (see a previous reply to this thread),
I am having problems using propagated features in this case...

This is not a bug with your MIDL code, but rather the way that the
<implicit-dependency> feature works with a propagated feature. For
example, given:

mstypelib core : core.idl ;
lib comobj : comobj.cpp : <windows>nt <implicit-dependency>core ;
exe comexe : main.cpp : <windows>xp
<implicit-dependency>core//core ;


feature windows : none nt 2k xp 2k3 vista : propagated composite ;

will cause the build to fail because:


is added to the include path by implicit dependencies and


is required for it to build properly. That is, I have:


and thus, main.cpp can't find core.h. By changing this to incidental:

feature windows : none nt 2k xp 2k3 vista : incidental composite ;

the correct directory is added and things build correctly.
