1) In your other project, go to project->settings, and under the link tab, type in your library name and location into the objects/library modules edit control.

2) Include the header file into any source in which you want to use the library function.

or place this inside one of the source files of the other project:

#pragma comment(lib,"yourlibraryname.lib")

Also the .LIB file should be located where the linker will find it.  I'll explain if you ask.
