    DirectX app won't compile on release mode

    It compiles fine on Debug mode (MSVC 6). I'd post the code but... uh... there's a lot. I think I'm forgetting to link a library or something silly like that anyway, because it's giving me the following link errors:

    Code:
    Linking...

    capplication.obj : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol _D3DXMatrixPerspectiveFovLH@20

    ...what did I forget?
    Away.

    When you added the libraries to the link tab, you did it only for the Debug configuration. On the dropdown menu, you have to select Release and add the appropriate libraries.
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    Thanks, that did it.

    Here, have a screenshot . That took a while, and still needs a lot of work done to make it into anything good.

    edit: changed the link to a picture that's reasonable for you guys on dialup

    Wouldn't it be simpler just to link it in the code?
    Code:
    #pragma comment(lib, "thelibrary.lib")
    Just Google It. √
