I'm using MS visual c++ and get an error
'cannot open file "..\..\..\lib\debug\foo.lib"'.
This file is in the d:\x\x1\lib\debug directory and the
tools/option lib directories point to this path.  Please give me an idea.

Move it to a different directory and try it again.
Move it to something simple like d:\

In case, u still have problem include the lib file in the project itself ..for checking !!

Suggestion ->
dun give path like ..\..\lib\debug\foo.lib ..

in the linking option specify ur lib name .. foo.lib
now Tools->Options->LibraryPath
u include path of foo.lib ..

This will work !!!

griessh...

My suggestion on this one is valid and could possibly have been the answer.
You're right that there was never any feedback, but that happens a lot especially with 1st and 2nd questions.

Sure, could be ... but (s)he mentioned having it in the lib path. Just moving the file won't fix the problem (if the statement in the question is really true!)
