    Unresolved symbol

    I'm having this odd problem in that Visual Studio 2008 Express is giving me an unresolved symbol error for WSAStartup(). winsock.h is included, but there doesnt seem to be a winsock.lib on my system even with windows sdk installed. Anyone else have this happen or know how to get 2008E to compile winsock code?

    Nevermind, I forgot that windows uses ws2_32.lib

    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.
