    What it's saying is, the compiler (or linker) is told to look for a library called "Util", but can't find it.

    What's in D:\Software for Education\quincy\lib? Is there a libUtil.a?

    I just tried it and it works. It doesn't look for Util. Did you change any settings?

    as u said the compiler is looking for lib call Util. since it cannot find it so then i delete "-| Util" under Linker option and then it come alive!!! thank a lot for replys.

    Actually, it looks like it's using bar characters ("|") instead of the lower-case L you'd expect ("l").

    And, if that does not work remove the space between the "-l util" as in "-lutil".
    I have no idea if space is needed; but, it is not normally there for the Compiler I use.
