How do I find out which libraries I need to include when my link fails in Visual C++

Visual C++ (not .net)

My immediate problem is that the link fails -

unresolved external symbol __endthreadex referenced in function "void __stdcall AfxEndThread(unsigned int,int)" (?AfxEndThread@@YGXIH@Z)

I'd like to find out the library I need to include to find this function (AfxEndThread) and the method so that I can find any other unresolved references that may occur - ever.

What kind of project did you create?  AfxEndThread is an MFC function and _endthreadex is a C runtime function.  You need to link with a C runtime library such as msvcrtd.lib (debug multithreaded dll).  This should be automatic if you created an MFC project.  If it is not an MFC project, you should not use AfxEndThread.

As far as finding the libaries you need, you can look at the MS docs for the function in question.  They include information such as the header to include, the platforms on which the function is supported, and the library to link with.  See, for example, http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/vclib/html/_crt__endthread.2c_._endthreadex.asp.  The "Libraries" section has a link to the C-runtime libraries page because this is not a simple use library x answer.

The problem seems that you are using multithread feature but you are linking to single threaded library.
Please try the following steps:

Open project property dialog, goes to C/C++ --> Code generation

Runtime library : select Multithread ... to use multithreaded library.
