Just be sure that the path of the winmm.lib file is in the library path files.

Which compiler are you using?

Also when i configured the directories of VC++ I couldn't find the file =

Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\PlatformSDK\Include

Could this be the problem ,because my VC++ folder doesn't contain it.
