    Yes. Oviously you don't have the file iphlpapi.lib installed on your system. Try searching google for iphlpapi.lib, or ask if anyone has it. I don't. I don't even know what it is. But I can help.

    From what I've seen, It seems to be a Windows CE module, am I correct?

    [edit]
    Sorry. I can't seem to find a download. See if you can snag an admin or mod. But I'll keep trying.

    Correction: LNK1104 cannot open the file iphlpapi.lib

    Cannot open file. Therefore, he doesn't have the file. That's why I'm searching.

    [edit]Maybe the file isn't in the right directory? And besides, are you using MSVC (MicroSoft Visual C++) or Dev-C++? From what I see on MSDN, you're using MSVC version 6.0 +, am I correct?[/edit]

    If iewro managed to link the file in using the "link tab option", it exists, I would imagine. iewro's compiler wouldn't allow it if the file didn't exist.

    Incorrect. You can type in SFHSDJFKSHDNMKTNewwwrhjwe.sdjkf and it will accept it until you try to link. Then you get error LNK1104. Go ahead, try it in MSVC or DEV.

    Is that right? That's not too smart (the compiler, I mean).

    Thank you for your answers.

    Could you tell me why the following code line fails ?

    DWORD len=sizeof(Adap);
    DWORD status=GetAdaptersInfo(Adap,&len)

    Again thanks

    Yes, it's right. The link tab is just a place for you to write in what librarys you want to link to. The linker doesn't actually check for the validity of those files until the link process begins.

    Yes. Or, at least, on my compilers it doesn't check until compiletime. It might be a holdover from the days where your sourcefile & makefile were on diffrent disks than you gcc or tcc or whatever. Anyway. I can't seem to find a download for iphlpapi.lib, but I got a good excercise in searching MSDN. Sorry, iewro.

    Explain what you mean by "fails". What error are you getting?

    Debug error, abnormal program termination.

    Therefore, incorrect parms, passing an unallocated pointer by value, or perhaps no memory left .

    [edit]Here's your problemo:

    Code:
    DWORD status=GetAdaptersInfo(Adap,&len)
    It should be:
    Code:
    DWORD status=GetAdaptersInfo(Adap,len)
    P.S. And maybe len should equal sizeof(structname) rather than sizeof(varname).

    If I'm wrong, please tell me, and I'll look again.

    ... and what did you think reporting it would do exactly? Besides wasting all of the mods time, who will see the mail and look to see if it has been handled... not a good way to go.

    This is a reply to the reporter, not to the thread. S/he knows who that is.
