Im trying to release build my directx application but i get lots of unresolved external symbol errors during the linking process. if runs fine when i do a Debug build. Iam using Visual C++ .net 7.0 Is it because I am using the Debug version of the DirectX SDK. The release version of the SDK is supposed to be used for a release build i think.

Allways post your actual error messages if you expect to get a useful answer.

If you're linking against the debug version of the SDK in release mode, that's probably your problem. It should be pretty easy to just try linking the release version in your release build, yes?

If you get an unresolved external saying some function hasn't been defined, search in your documentation and it will tell you what library that function is defined in. Then you just make sure you're linking against the correct version of that library (debug/release, single/multithreaded, dll/static lib)
