    Libraries in VC++

    Hi all,

    I need a little help in using a library in VC++
    I have the library files, but I am not sure which files to use and how?

    I need to call the functions of this library into my own code in VC++..

    Do I include all the source and header files provided.. or do I just need t include the object file library and the DLL of the same name authors have already provided..

    Many thanks,

    You include header files. You don't include DLL files. If they were .lib files, you would link them; with DLL files, you need to do LoadLibrary and friends if you want to actually use the functions inside the library.
