I am running VC++ 7. I tried installing the newest version of win32Libs, no apparent change. I even recompiled CS again with the new win32Libs, just to see if it would make any difference.
I tried removing the files from the list one by one. Each time the filename changes in the build error until i take out the last one and it goes crazy and spouts a billion errors.
Here is the exact build error. I've tried it with the debug version and only the name of the lib changes.
------ Build started: Project: simple1, Configuration: Debug Win32 ------
LINK : fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file 'libcsutil.lib'
Build log was saved at "file://c:\Cs\simpleCS\simple1\Debug\BuildLog.htm"
simple1 - 1 error(s), 0 warning(s)
---------------------- Done ----------------------
Build: 0 succeeded, 1 failed, 0 skipped
I tried removing the path information to where the libs are located, and There was no change to the error message, which confused me. Since you would think it would whine alot more. So it's almost like it can't find them at all.
So i tried copying and pasting the Libs from CS\mk\visualc7\csrelease\bin\libs
to my CS\include
folder. Since i know it's seeing that folder since it's reading all of those include files from it. But this had no apparent change.
I'm going to try just remaking a brand new solution in Visual Studio and remake it from scratch. See if that fixes the problem.
