Linking error caused by mixing MFC and non MFC style code

I've been trying to include a few files such as my own Matrix library with an MFC app. The problem I run into is a linking error caused by two libraries defining the same symbol.

nafxcwd.lib(afxmem.obj) : error LNK2005: "void * __cdecl operator new(unsigned int)" (??2@YAPAXI@Z) already defined in LIBCMTD.lib(new.obj)
nafxcwd.lib(afxmem.obj) : error LNK2005: "void __cdecl operator delete(void *)" (??3@YAXPAX@Z) already defined in LIBCMTD.lib(dbgdel.obj)
nafxcwd.lib(afxmem.obj) : error LNK2005: "void * __cdecl operator new(unsigned int,int,char const *,int)" (??2@YAPAXIHPBDH@Z) already defined in LIBCMTD.lib(dbgnew.obj)
Debug/TestStaticPos.exe : fatal error LNK1169: one or more multiply defined symbols found

The non-MFC code is not using a precompiled header.I know its caused by something in the project settings but I haven't been able to track it down.

If you've seen this before and have found a way around it, Please respond.

only rebuild your library.
when you do that you need to select "use mfc in static link"

or you can rebuild your library as DLL.
if you only export C function from the DLL, it is easy and simple.
but if you want to export C++ class from the DLL you must select "use mfc in static link" or "use mfc in shared link" ,what choice is made occording to your application project setting.
