I am simply trying to Compile/Link the source Code for wolfenstein (3-d).

I am using Visual C++ 2005 AND I get the following error:

LINK : fatal error LNK1181: cannot open input file 'winmm.lib'

I did a search for this file and the result was file not found. I read somewhere that DirectSDK was needed
but after installing (DX_SDK) app the error still remained. Any help is appreciated!!

On my computer this library can be found at C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\PlatformSDK\Lib. Try to run VS installation again and select all SDK components. If your installation doesn't contain this library, install Microsoft SDK:

winmm.lib is part if Windows Multimedia SDK.
