    FFTW - LIB : fatal error LNK1181: cannot open input file 'LIBRARY'

    I am trying to install the FFTW libraries on my windows XP machine so I can integrate them into a project using the portaudio libraries in VS-2005.

    I am following these instructions;

    http://www.fftw.org/install/windows.html
    Precompiled FFTW 3.2.1 Windows DLLs install
    using fftw-3.2.1-dll.zip, on my Windows XP machine.

    I am executing this lib command:
    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\bin>lib /machine:i386 /def:libfftw
    3-3.def @../fftw-3.2.1-dll/libfftw3-3.def

    which appears to start to build the library but eventually throws this error:
    .
    .
    fftw_transpose
    fftw_transpose_tiled
    fftw_transpose_tiledbuf
    fftw_triggen_destroy
    fftw_twiddle_awake
    fftw_twiddle_length
    LIB : fatal error LNK1181: cannot open input file 'LIBRARY'

    From the libfftw3-3.def file start
    LIBRARY libfftw3-3.dll
    EXPORTS
    dfftw_cleanup_
    dfftw_cleanup__
    dfftw_cleanup_threads_
    .
    .
    continues
    .
    .
    fftw_transpose_tiledbuf
    fftw_triggen_destroy
    fftw_twiddle_awake
    fftw_twiddle_length

    I put the continues comment in for clarification, there is nothing after fftw_twiddle_length. The libfftw3-3.dll file is in the same directory as the .def file. I have also tried copying lib.exe to this directory and executing it there but I get the same behavior.

    Does anyone have a suggestion for fixing this issue? I have posted to the fftw mailing list but haven't gotten any replies.

    Thanks,
    Brian
