I tried to install the devil library but I am getting some
errors. Here are the steps that I am taking to install it :
Let me see if I did this correctly : Steps : 1) download DevIL 1.7.8 for windows 32 bit 2) extract the info to c:\devil folder 3) open visual studio 2008 tool->options. 4) goto VC++ Directories 5) change the options to show Include Files 6) Add file directory -- C:\devil\Include 7) change the option to show Library Files 8) Add file directory -- c:\devil\Lib (note) there is a unicode folder inside of Lib folder 9) Click Ok 10) click alt-F7 for project options 11) goto c++ tab and under Addition Include Directory add C:\devil\Include (not sure if thats needed) 12) under c++ tab--code generation--make sure Runtime library is on multi-thread debug dll(/MDd) 13) click ok. Then on my program add some or all header : #include<IL/il.h> #include<IL\ilu.h> #include<IL\ilut.h> from this in my functions ilInit() works, but iluInit() causes a linking error, as well as ilutInit().
Am I doing this correctly
Even if I don't use ilu or ilut, I need ilu, and it does not give me an linking error, but when I try to load an image
with ilLoadImage(L"starts.bmp") it return false. Even if I try absolute path like
ilLoadImage("C:...\project\loadimgwithlib\start.bmp") it won't work.
Anyone have it working with visual studio 2008 and with openGL?
