    Linker Problem with Dev C++

    HI,

    I am trying to use Dev C++ to compile some sample code I got, which was written in C. With the code I have the necessary header files, .lib file and .dll files I need and they are all in the same directory as the .cpp file I am creating.

    Anyway, I keep getting variations of the following error message:

    [Linker error] undefined reference to `_imp__ETSocketLink@8'

    I am using the following code to add in the .lib file

    Code:
    #pragma comment( lib, "smbw32vc.lib" )
    That bit of code was suggested to me by a friend but he is unfamiliar with Dev.

    Now, I have no reason to assume the code is wrong. It is sample code after all. The only problem I am having is with the Linker, at the moment.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Regards

    Sorry,

    Figured out how myself.

    For future reference, if anyone gets a similar problem, just do the following:

    Go to Project>>Project Options
    Click on the "Parameters" tab
    Click on "Add Library or Object"
    Browse to the .lib

    That pragma only works with Visual Studio. Just for future reference.

    Outside of your DOS world, your header file is meaningless.
