I am trying to write a wrapper DLL with Visual Studio 2005 to solve a _cdecl/_stdcall problem I had calling the original DLL methods from VB6. I'm a linux/gnu guy and Microsoft is giving me fits. I finally figured out (I think) how to resolve the external in the wrapper DLL by including the lib file for the original DLL in the Properties/Linker/Input tab. I don't get an 'unresolved external' anymore. I do get the error LINK : fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file 'c:\Documents.obj'. I saw it suggested on another list that being under 'My Documents' was an issue but moving the output does not solve the problem. There is nothing in my source tree remotely like Documents.c/cc. Can anybody tell me what the IDE is whining about?
