Hello,

I am getting a linker error for a project I dowloaded online. The project is in vc 2005. However when I try to compile i get the error:

LINK : fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file '..\..\..\..\..\program files\microsoft visual studio 8\vc\platformsdk\lib\WinMM.Lib'

This is the right path apart from the camel case for the directory. I actually had it working but then I screwed the project up and can't remember how to fix it and can't find the article that told me how.

I have updated all the additional libraries and dependencies. Still no luck.

Regards,

Andrew

(At this point you should as well write the full path... -> 'c:\program files\microsoft visual studio 8\vc\platformsdk\lib\WinMM.Lib')

No need to overcomplicate things...
