    Using precompiled .OBJ files in visual studio

    I have been given a .h file along with a .OBJ file which as been precompiled. Im wondering how can i set visual studio up so that it will ignore the definitions in the .h file until the linker can handle them.

    For example. I have a file called screen.h

    It contains void ScreenInit();

    The source for that function is in screen.obj

    Im including the .h file in my code but since only the declaration of the function is in the project, visual studio gives me errors saying that it could find the body of that function.

    Any suggestions?
