I'm attempting to set up a project that will do nothing except compile my engine code to a library, so I can have other projects to use that library to make everything easier, and so I can start using my engine as an engine. I just created the new project and followed the "Walkthrough: Creating and Using a Static Library" article on MSDN. My problem is that I just pressed compile, and I got a huge amount of warnings and a couple of errors. Why? I mean, if I'm not getting these errors when I compile the whole thing as an application (the only difference being I have a source file with a 'main' being compiled as well), why should I be getting them now? Has this happened to anyone else? Also, I'm not telling the compiler to ignore any warnings or errors in the 'main' source file. Edit:: I'm also getting "'CreateFontW' : cannot convert parameter 14 from 'const char *' to 'LPCWSTR'" errors where I never got them before. Am I not including something that I should be? I wasn't including anything in the 'main' source file. Not windows.h, not stdio.h, nothing except the main include (the file which includes all the headers in the engine).

In your settings go to your project properties and on the Configuration Properties -> General page, change the "Character Set" setting from "Use Unicode Character Set" to "Use Multi-Byte Character Set".
This will at least take care of the "cannot convert parameter 14 from 'const char *' to 'LPCWSTR'"" type errors.
Then come back and post what errors and warnings you're still getting after you've done that. ;)

Evil Steve: They were all compile errors and compile warnings.

Red Ant: Thanks for that, now the errors are gone and I've just got a whole bunch of warnings. Does this mean that whenever I create a new project and want to use normal characters with windows functions, I'm going to have to change that? Isn't that a little silly?

Anyway, the warnings that I get now are mostly "conversion from 'size_t' to 'int'" or to 'unsigned int' in one form or another (assignment, arguments, etc).

Hmmm, now here's some I've never seen before:
warning C4311: 'type cast' : pointer truncation from 'echo::core::CEngine *const ' to 'long'
warning C4312: 'type cast' : conversion from 'LONG' to 'echo::core::CEngine *' of greater size

and the guilty line of code is:
// store pointer to this CEngine object for later retrieval in the WndProc function
SetWindowLong(m_hwnd, GWL_USERDATA, (long)this);

Which, I suppose is fair enough, but I wasn't having any problems with this before, and I was fequently using that pointer.

I then get a bunch of "conversion from 'WPARAM' to 'unsigned int'" warnings. And then the rest are "conversion from 'size_t' to 'unsigned int'" or 'int' warnings.

Isn't this a little strange? I mean you wouldn't think that moving source code from one project to another would actually create errors, so I must be missing some project options.

The project that all this source was previously in was imported from a VC++ 6 project. Are there some project settings that are implicitly set when a project is imported from a previous version of VS?

In your older (converted-from-VC6) project, the compiler was likely not set to detect potential 64-bit compilation issues. If you are not planning on targeting a 64-bit platform, you can safely ignore or disable these warnings (the setting is under C++->General in your project settings). Under 64-bit platforms, pointers are 64 bits in size, while 'long' usually remains 32-bit for backwards compatibility. size_t is also 64 bit on these platforms.

Thanks. I also found out that I had to disable it on both the Debug and Release versions.

Another question: Why would be lib file end up being 7 meg? I thought that maybe it was because I was compiling in Debug, so I changed to Release, and that ended up as 12 meg!

Should I have set some particular optimization settings?

I am doing some things that could cause code bloat: I have a bunch of classes that are generated at compile time, but I was using them in my previous exectuable (before I tried compiling to a libary) and the size of that exectuable (in debug mode) is 1.75 meg.

What am I doing wrong?

I've added the project that compiles the library to the current solution so it should compile that first (hopefully) and I now have a whole bunch of link errors:

It looks like it compiles the library with no problems, but has problems finding the library to use.

I have this at the very beginning of my code:

#include "C:\\Documents and Settings\\Naim\\My Documents\\Programming\\everything\\Echo\\Echo\\core\\echo.h"
#pragma comment(lib, "C:\\Documents and Settings\\Naim\\My Documents\\Programming\\everything\\Echo\\debug\\Echo.lib")

And it doesn't complain that it can't find the lib file, so I assume that it has found it.

Am I going about this the wrong way, or did I simply forget something?

The problem is the version of the CRT. It should match (DLL or static) for all libs.

found under project/properties/C++/Code Generation.

Okay, but should I use the debug version for the debug version of my project? Or should I just keep it with the normal version of the CRT? Or does that just let me step through the assembly, or whatever else they have for a function in the CRT?

Normaly, people are linking debug CRT libraries in debug builds and release CRT in release builds. Normaly...
Ofcourse, you can link what ever you want, unless, ofcourse, you are using some functions that only exists in debug library.

About the size of your library... Are you linking the library dependencies in your library project? The setting can be found in project properties (Configuration Properties, Librarian, General; option title is "Link Library Dependencies")? Personaly, i'd recomend you to turn this thing off.
Let's say you are linking in the static multithreaded CRT libraries (debug and release) into your library project. Then, you make a new project that uses your own library but wants to use the shared multithreaded CRT libraries... Whenever you link this project - there will be a bunch of linker errors.
That is why, i never link the library dependecies into my static library projects - i let the projects that will use my library decide what CRT (and other libs) to use.

No, "Link Library Dependencies" is off by default, it looks like.


Edit:: I was also having problems with one of my projects that is using this: I couldn't use ctrl+F10 to run the app until it hit a line of code. It was like there was no proper debug information, even though debug information was turned on. But, it does do that now.

I just went through my previous test app and took a whole bunch of settings from there (kind of irresponsible I know, but it worked), and I can't remember all the ones I changed. Does anyone know which option this might have been?
