Hey, I've been trying to understand what the hell I'm doing wrong with this code.
At the beginning, I include the DDRAW.H, and the code compiles with no problem, but as soon as I try using a function from that header, I get a linker error.
The function I used was the DirectDrawCreate(NULL, &lpDD, NULL)
And it's the only function I used, before I typed it in it compiled.
(I also made a global pointer, but that too compiled before adding this function)
"error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol _DirectDrawCreate@12 referenced in function..."
I'm assuming this error is because the library file hasn't been included somehow into the project? Anyone know what to do?
Tutorials on the subject? Anything that might help me understand how to work with VC++'s linker
I've added the library directory to the linker, I've added the specific library to the linker, and still nothing.
