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 !!!

I think you forgot this question. I will ask Community Support to close it unless you finalize it within 7 days. Unless there is objection or further activity,  I will suggest to refund the points and PAQ at zero points since you never gave more feedback.

PLEASE DO NOT ACCEPT THIS COMMENT AS AN ANSWER!

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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!)
