Using MMSYSTEM in Visual C++

I am having trouble using the Windows Multimedia System (waveInOpen and such functions) under Visual C++. The code compiles OK, but does not link. When I try to link I get the following error messages:

RecordDlg.obj : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol __imp__waveInClose@4
RecordDlg.obj : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol __imp__waveInReset@4
RecordDlg.obj : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol __imp__waveInOpen@24
RecordDlg.obj : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol __imp__waveInAddBuffer@12
RecordDlg.obj : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol __imp__waveInUnprepareHeader@12
RecordDlg.obj : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol __imp__waveInPrepareHeader@12
RecordDlg.obj : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol __imp__waveInStart@4
Debug/Amuse.exe : fatal error LNK1120: 7 unresolved externals
Error executing link.exe.

I understand that the compiler is unable to resolve the external references, probably because there is no import library for the MMSYSTEM.DLL file. How can I solve this problem?

  Add mmsystem.lib to your linker library list.

 Yep...  Yer right!   That is what I get for answering when I am not at my development machine... :P

   Slarti, reject my previous answer.  "larockd" deserves the points.

Sorry jtwine.. Of course the first thing I tried was to include mmsystem.lib but the file does not exist. I was not aware that the import library name was listed in the online help of the function, so larockd's answer really deserves the points.

Larockd: Please post a blank answer so I can accept it.
