I'm using a function called NetScheduleJobAdd() and when I build it I get Linker Error 2001 and 4 warnings.  The code is :

#include <string.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <windows.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <lm.h>
#include <lmat.h>

     int main(void)
     {
          char server[256];
          long JobTime;
          int DaysOfMonth, DayOfWeek;
          DWORD rc, jobId;
 

          char ascOther[80];
          AT_INFO myATINFO;
          myATINFO.JobTime = 36000000 ; //Time from midnight in ms
          myATINFO.DaysOfMonth = 0;
          myATINFO.DaysOfWeek = 1;        // 0 = mon, 1=tues, etc.
          myATINFO.Flags = JOB_RUN_PERIODICALLY;
          myATINFO.Command = L"c:\\LaunchJob.exe";
         
            strcmp(server,  "barbaccija");

          rc = NetScheduleJobAdd((LPWSTR) &server , (byte *)&myATINFO, &jobId  );    
          return 0;
     }
 

The Errors and warnings are:

Netschedule.cpp
c:\rocklobsterj\ptest1\netschedule.cpp(20) : warning C4101: 'ascOther' : unreferenced local variable
c:\rocklobsterj\ptest1\netschedule.cpp(13) : warning C4101: 'JobTime' : unreferenced local variable
c:\rocklobsterj\ptest1\netschedule.cpp(14) : warning C4101: 'DayOfWeek' : unreferenced local variable
c:\rocklobsterj\ptest1\netschedule.cpp(14) : warning C4101: 'DaysOfMonth' : unreferenced local variable

you call the method "NetScheduleJobAdd" which is not implemented. I guess, you've included the header-file but not added the lib-file to your project.

I did add the lib file.

I hope to save you more points when you get this program linked and it still doesn't work.  

I think you wanted strcpy instead of strcmp.  

Strcpy will copy the string that you specified into the string variable that you pass to the function.  Strcmp will only return a value telling you if the two strings are equal or not, and you have not even checked the return value.

Just to make sure, in order to link with the correct lib file, you need to go to the Project Menu, Settings Option, which brings up a tabbed dialog box.  Click on the link tab, and add the correct lib file to the Object/Library modules field.

Sorry, I thought I added the lib file but as it turns out I didn't.  Anyway since you both suggested it I'll give an 'A' to whom ever answers the rest of the question which is:

Netschedule.cpp
c:\rocklobsterj\ptest1\netschedule.cpp(20) : warning C4101: 'ascOther' : unreferenced local variable
c:\rocklobsterj\ptest1\netschedule.cpp(13) : warning C4101: 'JobTime' : unreferenced local variable
c:\rocklobsterj\ptest1\netschedule.cpp(14) : warning C4101: 'DayOfWeek' : unreferenced local variable
c:\rocklobsterj\ptest1\netschedule.cpp(14) : warning C4101: 'DaysOfMonth' : unreferenced local variable


I need these warnings gone.

You are getting those warnings because you have declared them as variables, but you aren't using them anywhere.

Either delete the declarations, or use the variables.  It looks to me like you don't need any of them.

this is clear 'unreferenced local variable' says nothing else.

in my opinion the problem was the lib-file and I answered first. but its your decision.

I messed up it was my fault and I said I would give the points to the person who told what to do with the 4 warnings.  Since agriggs responded I had to give them to him.
