    Question Unresolved external symbs

    Yep.

    Unresolved External Symbols. 10 of them.

    Code:
    Error	2	error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol "public: int __thiscall Zora::CKernal::Execute(void)" (?Execute@CKernal@Zora@@QAEHXZ)	E:\Projects\Zora Engine\Zora Test\Application.obj	Zora Test

    I know for a fact, I'm linking against ZEngine.lib, Is it possible that VC went explode() with my function names?

    PHP Code:
    // CApp.h
    #ifndef __CAPPLICATION_H__
    #define __CAPPLICATION_H__

    #include "../ZEngine/engineIncludes.h"
    #include "../ZEngine/Singleton.h"

    class CApplication : public Singleton<CApplication>
    {
    public:
        
    void Run(int argccharargv[]);
    };

    #endif 
    PHP Code:
    // CApp.cpp
    #define __ZORA__

    #include "Application.h"

    void CApplication::Run(int argccharargv[])
    {
        
    // Open logFiles.
        
    if(!CLog::Get().Init()) return;

        
    // Couple of SingleTonZ :D
        
    new CSettingsManager();
        new 
    CKernal();

        
    CProfileLogHandler profileLogHandler;
        
    CProfileSample::outputHandler = &profileLogHandler;

        
    // Main LOOP!
        
    CKernal::GetSingleton().Execute();

        
    // Clean UP!
        
    delete CKernal::GetSingletonPtr();
        
    delete CSettingsManager::GetSingletonPtr();

    The define is only to enable the inclusion of my headers from the static lib.

    Unless we have your project, we can't verify this for ourselves. Right now, we don't know if you made a mistake or not. None of what you posted proves anything as to whether you're doing things correctly when it comes to linker settings.

    No, the problem is usually

    1) you didn't include that library in your linker settings,

    or

    2) if it's C++ templates involved, you instantiated a template, and the implementation for that template is not available.

    Re: Unresolved external symbs

    Do not include pdb, ncb, or any junk files from your project. You should only include source code, resources, and any other files needed to compile and link your project.

    Unfortunately, I use Visual Studio 2008, so your project will not open for me.

    Regards,
