Has anyone been able to compile the lib files using Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Express compiler? I downloaded and installed MySQL 5.0 Server yesterday, then downloaded MySQL++ source. Attempted to compile and got a bunch of link errors. I used dumpbin.exe to get a list of all the symbols in libmysql.lib and noted that the function names did not have _ in front of them, but the symbol names the compiler's linker was trying to find did have the underline.
Is there a way to force the compiler to NOT put the underline in front of symbol names so that the linker can resolve the symbols in the libmysql.lib library?
