    problem with undefined reference


    i'm trying create a simple window with a listview control, and i keep having problems with undefined references.

    i'm using mingw 4.5.0, already have WINVER, _WIN32_WINNT, and _WIN32_IE defined, necessary headers included and the correct lib files linked (i think),

    here's the error output from compiler:
    C:\Users\User\AppData\Local\Temp\ccw9OFo5.o:main.cpp:(.text+0x210): undefined reference to `InitCommonControlsEx@4'
    C:\Users\User\AppData\Local\Temp\ccw9OFo5.o:main.cpp:(.text+0x2c3): undefined reference to `SetWindowTheme@12'
    collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
    here's the command i use to compile:
    g++ -static-libstdc++ -Wall -Wl,-subsystem,windows -I. -lcomctl32 -luxtheme main.cpp -o test.exe > o.txt 2>&1
    any idea what i'm doing wrong?

    Put these after main.cpp
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
