damn linker error

Recommended Posts

I get this error whenever I try to compile my win32 project dxutil.obj : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol __imp__timeGetTime@0 referenced in function "float __stdcall DXUtil_Timer(enum TIMER_COMMAND)" (?DXUtil_Timer@@YGMW4TIMER_COMMAND@@@Z) here is the code I used. I include ddutil.h, ddutil.cpp, dxutil.h, and dxutil.cpp. I also linked ddraw.lib and dxguid.lib ro my project:

I can't see what's wrong with it. I include every file and library needed to use to dxutility functions. if you can point out my error, I owuld most appreciative.

I have one more error. it's a run-time though:

Run-Time Check #3 - the variable 'lpMsg' is being used without being defined.

I set it up right inside the Winmain function and only use it inside the Winmain function. Do I need to set it to NULL when I declare it?

int WINAPI WinMain(HINSTANCE hInstance, HINSTANCE hPrevInstance,
LPSTR lpCmdLine, int iShowCmd)
{
WNDCLASSEX wc;
HWND hWnd;
MSG lpMsg;

wc.cbClsExtra=0;
wc.cbSize=sizeof(WNDCLASSEX);
wc.cbWndExtra=0;
wc.hbrBackground=(HBRUSH)GetStockObject(BLACK_BRUSH);
wc.hCursor=LoadCursor(NULL,IDC_ARROW);
wc.hIcon=LoadIcon(NULL,IDI_APPLICATION);
wc.hIconSm=LoadIcon(NULL,IDI_APPLICATION);
wc.hInstance=hInstance;
wc.lpfnWndProc=WndProc;
wc.lpszClassName="wc";
wc.lpszMenuName=0;
wc.style=CS_HREDRAW|CS_VREDRAW;

if(!RegisterClassEx(&wc))
{
MessageBox(NULL,"Couldn't Register Window Class",
"Window Class Registration Failure",MB_OK|MB_ICONERROR);
return 0;
}

hWnd = CreateWindowEx(NULL,"wc","DirectDraw Common Files in Action",
WS_POPUPWINDOW,CW_USEDEFAULT,CW_USEDEFAULT,640,480,0,0,
hInstance,0);

if(hWnd == NULL)
{
MessageBox(NULL,"Failed to Create Window","Window Creation Failure",
MB_OK|MB_ICONERROR);
return 0;
}

ShowWindow(hWnd,SW_SHOW);
UpdateWindow(hWnd);

while(lpMsg.message != WM_QUIT)
{
if(PeekMessage(&lpMsg,0,0,0,PM_REMOVE))
{
TranslateMessage(&lpMsg);
DispatchMessage(&lpMsg);
}
else if(g_bActive)
{
MainLoop();
}
}
return lpMsg.wParam;
}
