VC++ 6.0 linking problem

I am having trouble linking a library into an application.
The library is included in the project settings tab and the
include file for the library has a extern "C" around it's
functions.  The application I am making is to develop an xtra for Macromedia Director.

The link error I am getting is:
VVscript.obj : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol _SmApiVersionCheck@8

Could anyone tell me why my app is not finding the function definitions?  Thanks.

try using the /FORCE flag on the linkage.
(or from the menus  - projects/settings/link/customize/Force File Output).
if that doesn't work maybe you haven't included the .lib file for that specific library.
check the project settings
