So I have installed the new C++ 2008 Express edition from MS. I have created a .Dll project and a .exe project.. The .Dll project compiles fine and I get a .dll file But when I get to the linking part for the .exe file the linker breaks and says I have no .Lib file for my .Dll file. So I looked through my project settings for my .Dll project and found "Import Library" and it has the value of $(OutDir)\$(ProjectName).lib which means it would generate ..\debug\enginecore.lib but it doesn't, I have tried to rebuild but no .lib file. So have I missed any options for creating .lib files when creating a .dll file? EDIT: So I found a place where I have to define a Module defention file, I assume this is where I put in a path for a .def file. Altough I don't have one, I am converting a project from CodeBlocks to VC++ 2008 Express and CB generated a .def file on its own.
