Hello, I am having issues linking my game with Apache's XercesC library. I keep getting linker errors like these: I:\dev\B5wx\Debug\main.o(.text+0x3721): In function Z14getvalueastextPN11xercesc_2_67DOMNodeE': J:\dev\libxeth\domparser.h:97: undefined reference to _imp___ZN11xercesc_2_69XMLString9transcodeEPKt' I:\dev\B5wx\Debug\main.o(.text+0x382b): In function Z15getnameasstringPN11xercesc_2_67DOMNodeE': J:\dev\libxeth\domparser.h:110: undefined reference to _imp___ZN11xercesc_2_69XMLString9transcodeEPKt' I am linking to the Xerces library, xerces-c_2, and the library path is correct. I am thinking that the issue may be related to my platform (I am running Windows XP-64). If that's it, could omeone perhaps tell me how I can compile Xerces for my environment (as I have tried several times, to no avail)? Thanks, Eyrian

MinGW uses the ".a" library format instead of microsoft's ".lib" format.
That could be your problem. There should be a tool with MinGW (GCC) called "reimp" to convert from ".lib" to ".a".
