I'm a newbie in this vast world of programming. I've been given some codes in C which are compiled & linked using makefile. I can compile the code using nmake from VS2005. Now i want to build the program in C++ VS2005 IDE.
From a quick google search, there seems to be no automated functions in importing makefile settings to VS IDE.
I tried to include all the necessary dependecies(header and lib files) stated in the makefile to VS but i get a lot of linking errors. I'm not even sure where to start looking to solve the issue. I hope the gurus can help me out.
The makefile including two other related makefile is attached to this post.
In VS I've:
 Create a new empty project
 Add exisiting sources (c files and header files)
 Additional Include Directories: ..../include and ..../src/make7
 Additional Library Directories: ..../lib
 Build project...
I got 74 linker errors the VS output after attempted build. Example:
conmain.obj : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol _MMSd_freeDsMemFunction
scl_cli.obj : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol _TAM_parse_address referenced in function _ResolveServerAddress
I've not dealt with makefiles before. I apologize if this post may sound very newbie style and amatuer-ish. I'm new but I'm willing to learn.
Any advice and comment is greatly appreciated.
