library conflicts

I've created an ANSI static library in VC++6.  I want to be able to use this library on all platforms so I'm using stl for things like vectors and strings.  The problem is, I've written an MFC app to call this library, and when I create a std::string from the MFC app I get a multiply defined symbol error.  How can I get over this without rewriting the library to not use stl?

It sounds like you are linking your static library to the static RTL.  MFC uses the DLL version of the RTL (I believe) so link you library to the DLL RTL.  (Under the project option, C/C++ tab, code generation category).

give that a try and let me know if it works.  I'm not answerign because I'm not sure that is the problem.
