mmsystem.lib

Recommended Posts

I''ve read about other people with similar problems with mmsystem.lib. For me, apparently I don''t have the library. I searched for it on my computer and it does not exist. I have DX 8.0a, as well as MSVC 6. I try to compile with it in my linker section and I get a compiler error. The book says I need it for dxutil.h to work.... However, when I take it out of my linker section my program compiles and runs just fine. Should I be worried about the fact that I apparently don''t need a file that I''m supposed to need? Where does this file come from? Is it part of Windows, MSVC or does it come with DirectX? I''m running Win2kPro, if that helps answer any of my questions. Thanks.

That library is only needed for the timing or PlaySound functions. Not for DX8 itself. As long as you dont need those functions, just leave it out.

Actually, the header name is misleading. You need to be looking for the winmm.lib library file. You should have it with your compiler.
