I recently updated Visual Studio and i got an error while trying to compile Direct3D11 App based on Frank Luna's Book (Introduction to 3D Game Programmig with DirectX11) which DxTrace was used in it.


Error :

Severity    Code    Description    Project    File    Line
Error    LNK2019    unresolved external symbol __vsnwprintf referenced in function "long __stdcall StringVPrintfWorkerW(unsigned short *,unsigned int,unsigned int *,unsigned short const *,char *)" (?StringVPrintfWorkerW@@YGJPAGIPAIPBGPAD@Z)    DirectXApp    D:\Projects\DirectX\DirectXTest\DirectXAppTest\DirectXApp\dxerr.lib(dxerrw.obj)    1

I finally found out that when i compile it using Visual Studio 2013 compiler it works!


What is the main reason that i didn't compile using Visual Studio 2015 compiler ? and how can i make it work?
