linking to MFC with static link library not DLL in V6.0
Posted on 1999-01-07
Prior to C++ Version 6.0 the AppWizard had on option
to let you select between linking to MFC dll or statically
linking the code into your application. That option seems
to have gone now. Is it still possible to link statically?
Where is this change documented? I've tried removing the
_AFXDLL compile defines from the C/C++ and resources settings and changing the "Use run-time Library" to "Debug Multithreaded" from "Debug Multithreaded Dll". But now the linker can't find nafxcw.lib. Which
is not unreasonable as I can't find it either and it's not
on my V6.0 distribution CD.
