    Making Lib files in MSVC++

    Hi all,
    I want to know if we can make a .lib file from existing "Win32 Console application" project in Microsoft Visual C++. If yes, how do you go about it?

    Actually Ive made a lib file, but its flagging errors saying "Undefined External Function" whenever I add this .lib file to my actual project.

    Please suggest some way out.

    Thanx
    Surendra

    Well, make sure you have included the header file in your project that defines the functions that you are calling, and make sure that the lib file is in the correct path to be loaded by your app.

    Probably the easiest thing that you can do is just chuck it in the base directory of your app while testing.
