This is a discussion on Can't initialize FMOD within the C++ Programming forums, part of the General Programming Boards category; Here's my code: Code: #include <fmod.hpp> #include <cstdio> #pragma comment(lib, "fmodex_vc.lib") using namespace std; int main() { FMOD_RESULT result; FMOD::System ...

    Can't initialize FMOD

    Here's my code:
    Code:
    #include <fmod.hpp>
    #include <cstdio>
    #pragma comment(lib, "fmodex_vc.lib")
    
    using namespace std;
    int main()
    {
    FMOD_RESULT result;
    FMOD::System *system;
    
    result = FMOD::System_Create(&system);		// Create the main system object.
    if (result != FMOD_OK)
    {
        printf("FMOD error! (%d) \n", result);
        exit(-1);
    }
    
    result = system->init(100, FMOD_INIT_NORMAL, 0);	// Initialize FMOD.
    if (result != FMOD_OK)
    {
        printf("FMOD error! (%d) \n", result);
        exit(-1);
    }
    
    
    }
    The linker output says:
    Code:
    1>Linking...
    1>SB.obj : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol _FMOD_System_Create referenced in function "enum FMOD_RESULT __cdecl FMOD::System_Create(class FMOD::System * *)" (?System_Create@FMOD@@YA?AW4FMOD_RESULT@@PAPAVSystem@1@@Z)

    I can't figure out what's the problem, what other libraries should I link? I just copied and pasted the code from the documentation and added #pragma comment(lib, "fmodex_vc.lib")

    BTW I'm using VC++2005 express

    Post this on the C board, this is C++ they may know more about the problem.

    You could try downloading the platform SDK for MSVC++2005 express, it does not have it included. Im not sure, but if you included windows.h with your file it may work. As you are calling the system by reference

    I don't know about your problem but you have 'using namespace std;' and you never utilize anything out of the std namespace..
