    Trouble while building

    Hi !

    I have written many lines of code involving many headers.
    When building the project I get many linking errors. These errors are not so hard to finf : LNK 2001 and LNK 2019 : the compiler is unable to link because it didn't compile some headers or source files that are parts of the projects. I'm sure about that because if I add somme silly lines the compiler doesn't see them. It's weird ! And these headers are included. So I do not understant the issue.

    If any idea ...

    Many thanks !

    Link errors like this mean that the linker is unable to resolve symbols - often because the linker hasn't been told about the required .lib files. In the linker configuration make sure that 'additional library directories' is set as required and that 'additional dependencies' specifies the required lib file(s). Also see
