I am new to these forums and I have a very simple, beginner question.
I am currently trying to set up an example program I found on particleSystems.org so I can learn how to use particles.
The example program is in the 'API and documentation' download shown on the front page of the site.
I have added the necessary include file in project properties, but am not sure what to add for the 'additional libraries'. Usually I just add the 'lib' folder, but I can't find one in the folder. How can I find out what needs to be added to the "include additional libraries" field under project properties? Obviously the program will not work until I do this.
I know this question is very specific, but any help/guidance would be appreciated.

If the examples complain about various missing libraries (like TIFF libraries, etc... you can find them in the Goodies/Release_vc80-90 folder depending on your version of MSVC). Or you can download the corresponding projects and build them yourself, but from my experience it's a nightmare trying to build large-scale libraries under Windows with MSVC, especially since most of them were designed with GCC in mind.
