Hi everyone, I'm using VC++ 2005 to build my engine (actually, it's currently only Core.dll) I've written most of the core.dll program, and I want to test it. So I made a new project and wanted to link it with core.lib file, but there is no such file in any of Core's directories, but instead there is a core.exp file. In MSDN it is said that if the .exp file is being created durin build, the linker does not generate .lib file, but does not say how to prevent .exp file from being created. Could you please advice me to create my core.lib file so I can test the core.dll . Yours, Kourosh

I wasn't aware that a .exp means no .lib is generated. Are you actually exporting any symbols (With __declspec(dllexport))? If you're not, VC won't generate a .lib for you.

Hi Steve,
Yes, I am using declspec(dllexport) in my project.

Yours,
Kourosh

Where did you hear that about the .exp file? I've got a project here that's creating both an .exp and a .lib just fine...

copy this link in your msdn: ms-help://MS.MSDNQTR.v80.en/MS.MSDN.v80/MS.VisualStudio.v80.en/dv_vccomp/html/a98b557c-1947-447a-be1f-616fb45a9580.htm

6th line. I tried to change the import lib name by /implib option, but that didn't work.
