VS 2010 native code static linking

by APIJunkie 18. May 2011 06:36

This is a heads up for any one that is used to auto link static libraries using project dependencies.

VS 2010 changed the game by adding a new step that is necessary in order to auto link static libraries.

It is not enough to specify project dependencies as we used to do in older versions of Visual Studio.

To setup auto linking go to Project/Properties/Common Properties/Framework and References/Add new reference.

I was first wounded by x86 assembly, recovered and moved on to C. Following a long addiction to C++ and a short stint at rehab I decided to switch to a healthier addiction so I am now happily sniffing .NET and getting hooked on Silverlight.

I am mainly here to ramble about coding, various API’s, Junkies(me especially) and everything else that happens between coders and their significant other.
