Linking errors

Hi,

I have an application that connects to COM servers to process certain information.  I did not set this part up myself.  It was already set up this way when I joined.  I'm now trying to use these servers in a separate project.  I went through the project that already had the servers set up and tried to do the same to my new project.  As far as I can tell, everything is the same (i.e. all files and libraries have been added to my project) but I must be forgetting something.  

I'm getting the following link errors when I compile:

Linking...

Can anyone help me out?

Thanks

Sorry, I forgot, you should also link with "rpcrt4.lib", i.e.

#pragma comment(lib,"rpcrt4.lib")

(or, as above, add that to your project manually)

VisualStudio (or, to be more precise 'MIDL') will generate some files when building your app which contain references to these symbol. Add

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

to your source code or add "rpcndr.lib" manually to your project.

dude, you are the fken man!!  I spent a lot of time on this going through my project making sure I didn't forget anything.  I don't see this in my other project though. Any ideas why that works without these libs?

jkrCommented:
Huh, that depends. MIDL might have already added that to the files upon generation, or they are already listed as part of the "default libraries" in the linker option. Mybe you started out with a different project type.
