u in library name probably indicates that application trying to compile as UNICODE.  In default installation of VC++ unicode librararies not installed.  So you need to rerun setup and select unicode libraries to be installed.  Or you can try to compile this app as non-unocode.  

Take a look at project configurations - you see what I mean.


Hope it helps...

You have to install the Unicode Debug library.
mfc42ud.lib (mfc = Microsoft Foudation Class, 42 = version 4.2, U = unicode, D = debug)

Forget everything else, just open the project, click on menu Build, click on Set Active Configuration, and select Win32 Debug (non unicode version) , it will work.

Threat intelligence is often discussed, but rarely understood. Starting with a precise definition, along with clear business goals, is essential.
