use the lib file to do linking and at runtime it will load the DLL. Just add the .lib file to linker and .h to project and there you go. I use CodeLite so I cannot help on VC++


What evironment are you running in eg. VS2008/2020 CLR / MFC?


You may find " Linking an Executable to a Dll " from MSDN helpful.

Depending on what version of VS you are using (this is for 2008): You can got to Project Settings > Properties > Configuration Properties > Linker > Input

Under Additional Dependencies add "Fmod.lib" to anything that is already there. You can also skip this step by using:

#pragma comment( lib, "Fmod.lib" )

Remember to add the lib and headers to your project and to include the header files when you are using the functionality.
