    Linking Library File?

    I need to Link mfc80d.dll. I THINK?

    But I have no idea how to do this.

    The microsoft help in the program was unbelievably uselesss.

    Where do I do linking or where do I put the file?

    Be specific please, I'm an idiot

    you don't specifically link to that dll. Depending on the functions you use your program needs to link with one of the .lib files in your compiler's lib directory or the Windows SDK lib directory. If you are getting unresolved externals at link time you should look up one of the functions in MSDN to find out what .lib file you need.

    You should also have created an MFC project -- you can't normally link MFC libraries with standard win32 project; well I should say its pretty difficult. And I think you need to use a Microsoft compiler to compile MFC code. I might be wrong but I don't think Microsoft licensed other compiler makers to use MFC.
