    Thank you nonoob for reply,

    I have creted a new project in visual c++ which I added the PLMRetEval.cpp into, but I couldn't do configurations to link it with lumer??

    And before that I tried to run lumer but still get errors when I rebuild Lemur-VS2008.sln but still have errors in linking??

    I don't know if what I have done is right, I'm not so good in vc++ ....

    There is a forum for C++ and a forum for C... you are in the one for C but mention some C++ files. That said, your problem is with issues compiling/linking your project. Show us the errors you are seeing.

    Thank you hk_mp5kpdw,

    I didn't concentrate on the forum name, but I will paste question in c++ forum.

    And here is the error that I'm getting when I debug the new project that I mentioned above:


    c:\program files\lemur\lemur 4.12\include\lemur-platform.h(22) : fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'unistd.h': No such file or directory



    I tried to delete this include line form lemur-platform.h but I can't save changes to that file??

    The unistd.h header file is a Unix/Linux header file and I doubt that you will be able to use your Microsoft compiler to compile a file that requires that header without massive changes.

    Jim I've searched about that file and some said many programmers add this file while they don't use it really?!! based on that I just tried to delete its include line..
