    loading libraries

    i have implemented music in one of my programs using the windows multimedia library winmm.lib, but to get my program to run on a different machine i have to go to properties..links and add winmm.lib before my code will compile...is there any way i can hard code it into my program?

    what does the name comment have to do w/anything, or is it just like a variable name

    i want to do winmm.lib and fmodvc.lib so would it look like this...

    #pragma comment1(lib, "winmm.lib")
    #pragma comment2(lib, "fmodvc.lib")

    I think it would still just be #pragma comment( lib, "whatever.lib" ) for both, but I'm not sure.
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah
