Hi,

How to set path for external library files , header files,dll files in Visula C++ for a particular project ?.

I have downloaded IBM ICU C package library and tries to run a sample using that .

But when building , " unresolved external symbol _ucnv_open_2_6" error thrown .But this ucnv_open() function is available in the IBM ICU library.

And in compilation , i didnt get any errors.

Any help appreciated much

Regards,
Yasin

Project - Settings - C++ - Preprocessor (select from Category combo box) - Additional include directories

Add here directories to search h-files in this project.


Project - Settings - Link - Input (select from Category combo box) - Additional library path.

Add here directories to search lib files.

There is no way to add directories to search Dll for specific programs. The rule is the same for all programs: when program is loaded, all it's Dll's should be found in current directory, program executable directory, Windows, System directory or available through PATH environment variable.
