Use #pragma comment(lib,"lib_name")? Another way is to add the libraries in the linker options.

#5115389 Win32 programming, relevant in windows 8?

Posted by jammm on 08 December 2013 - 10:50 AM

I've come across many game programming books which use win32 programming (windows.h) for the game window. But I'm wondering, since windows 8 is out, is it still useful to learn this? Or should I switch to metro style windows instead?
