    MSDN & Visual Studio

    I've been hitting some walls that seem solvable with the information contained in the MSDN pages, but currently I can't tell how to (or what to) include according to them. (They seem difficult to read, but I'm sure I'm just missing a couple key points.)

    Whenever I try to use them, I encounter a few roadblocks. The ones I seem to be encountering are listed below:

    1. I can't tell what files to include for the given msdn code
    2. If I know what files to include, I don't know what external libraries I should add
    3. If I know the above, I don't know where to actually include .dll files in the Visual Studio IDE (I think that the .lib files get added with project>"name"properties>linker>input>additional dependecies - if this includes the dll's automatically, then this third question is already answered)

    Can anyone explain (some of) these? In any case, thanks for taking the time to read this.

    1. The msdn page generally lists this at the bottom
    2. See #1

    Correct.
