I'm trying to compile a SDL application with microsoft's free toolkit, but whatever I try, it wants me to link msvcrt.lib, which isn't included in the toolkit, and which I'm not supposed to need anyway, as it uses libc.lib normally. I never specified anywhere to use it, but it keeps giving me that error. Anyone has experience building SDL with the toolkit could help me?

maybe you have to download the Platform SDK which isn't included in the Toolkit file. It is required to write and compile Win32 applications. Probably the Win32 version of SDL requires the platform sdk in order to compile.

I have it installed. And it's in the linker's path. However, the platform SDK doesn't include msvcrt.lib anyway, it seems that this lib is only included in the full Visual C++ compiler, when compiling with dynamic linking (which isn't available in the free toolkit).

It still doesn't work, I'm still searching, but I'm at a loss.
