Everytime I build Crystal Space in Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition I get an error saying that it cannot open input file zlib.lib.
Someone please help me. I've been dying to use Crystal Space, and I can't compile it no matter what I do. I have tried cygwin, I have tried MSYS and now I am trying Visual C++. I have already installed cs-win32libs and I installed everything that is necessary like the Platform SDK, and I have even downloaded the zlib.lib package itself I have tried putting it in different folders to see if it will read it.
Can someone please tell me what I have to do exactly to get rid of these errors.
LINK : fatal error LNK1181: cannot open input file 'zlib.lib'
..\..\libs\csplugincommon\directx\guids.cpp(27) : fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'd3d.h': No such file or directory
So someone who can help me fix this, please reply, for I am very tired of this stuff not working for me
