You need to use

#define INITGUID
#include <initguid.h>
#include <shlguid.h>

in *one* of your source files so that the

DEFINE_GUID(CLSID_ToolbarExtButtons, 0x2ce4b5d8, 0xa28f, 0x11d2, 0x86, 0xc5, 0x0, 0xc0, 0x4f, 0x8e, 0xea, 0x99);

(for example) in 'shlguid.h' will expand to a definition at not only a declaration and the linker can use it for linking.

Are you also linking with 'guids.lib'?

>>>> 'shlguid.h' will expand to a definition at not only a declaration and the linker can use it for linking.

if the cpp file where you set #define INITGUID  uses precompiled header (PCH) via stdafx.h the INITGUID might be ignored or the header file wouldn't be included cause it is already included by stdafx.h.

To fix that  you should add a new cpp file to your project that contains nothing but

#define INITGUID
#include <initguid.h>
#include <shlguid.h>

as jkr has explained above. To get it compiled you have to right-click the new cpp file in the project (or solution) tree and switch off PCH in the C++ tab of the settings (properties) for that file.

This problem has been resolved. The original author of the code forgot to send me a folder of headers and library files. Which fixed the problem.
