When you say "unresolved external symbol", I assume you are referring to the linker error? In that case, you are not "running your program", the IDE tries to compile it but fails at the linking stage. The most likely scenario is either not telling the linker to link to the library (with #pragma or in the linker options) or you try to link to an x86 library (in my experience the linker accepts a x86 library in x64 projects but just does not load any symbols from there).

That said, when describing a problem, always report any errors as verbatim as possible. Never paraphrase them.
