Author Topic: Using MinGW compiled libs in MSVC 6.0  (Read 2424 times)

« on: October 10, 2005, 02:55:47 pm »

I compiled Crystal Space with MinGW, because it doesn't work with my MSVC 6.0 compiler. But know I want to use MSVC for my actual project because of the IDE I am used to. The problem is that I get unresolved externals. I know it is a name mangling (decorating) issue. How can I get it to work? There must be some trick.

You'll want to provide more detailed information about what "doesn't work". We need precise explanation of the problems you experience.

Dear Phil!
I am almost certain, that you cannot use a MinGw compiled library with MSVC. There are ways to buld dlls and then force gcc to export the symbols, then from the def file with microsofts lib.exe build an import library, which is in turn could be used to link with the MinGW dlls. Trust me, it will be easier if you do a native compilation.
Best regards
