I think i have found out a good way to track the cause of link errors like:
error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol _BigTroubleYouDork

Now listen carfully. I will take the solution in small steps.

1. Go to the drive:\MSDEV directory the where you have your compiler, *.h, *.lib and the MSVC editor.
2. Press F3 and the search engine will pop up with the drive:\msdev as default.
3. Go to the last tab where you have advanced search and write in the textsearch editbox:
    In this example that would be "BigTrobleYouDork".
4. Now you probebly got some headerfiles and lib files.
5. Insert the .lib and/or .h file in the project. And you're done.... It worked for me.

Now the question: I now this is not the right way to solve the problem. I would be happy if somebody teached me the right way.

Yours sincerely
Andla.

Thanks!

Do you know any tools that can scan the program and list the right libs och header or dll that is needed in the project. I used the WNet.... functions for networks and could'nt find any- where that i should put the Mpr.lib in my project. I was hoping that i could find it in the .mak-file but not. The thing is that i cant read .mak-files in MSVC++ 4.1 it only uses .mdp    .
I think that the microsoft documentions are very poor telling the user what lib,dll,header that is used even if the Wnet... is in the doc's.
