    vc++ linker options problem

    I am using VC++ 6.0 and trying to ignore one the default libraries while linking. I checked MSDN web page for detailed information and found this :

    To set this linker option in the Visual Studio development environment

    Open the project's Property Pages dialog box. For details, see Setting Visual C++ Project Properties.
    Click the Linker folder.
    Click the Input property page.
    Modify the Ignore All Default Libraries or Ignore Specific Library property.

    But i cannot view my projects properties! It says me "No properties available". How can i ignore a default library?

    Note : When i try to link from the command line, i get a dll error that says me one of the required DLLs is missing.

    thanks in advice

    Your problem appears to be that your installation of Visual Studio (or VC++) is incomplete, and has nothing to do with the fact you're trying to get the linker to ignore default libraries. For example, the installation was terminated partway through or some of the necessary DLLs have been deleted after you installed it.

    Project Properties are for VC++ 7.0 and higher. In 6.0, they are called Project Settings. Your MSDN article is probably discussing the more recent versions. If you go to the Project Settings dialog in 6.0 it will probably be similar.
