How am I supposed to link files in .NET? The way I''m doing it now I''m just going to existing item and picking out what I want like that. Is that how we''re supposed to do it?

Linking works the same way as VC++ 6. Your description is far too vague to know what the problem is.

Sorry if that first post sounded vauge. I''m not really having a "problem" as I get my projects working, I was just wondering if there was a preferred method of linking libs and such. I read older tutorials for MSVC and they talk about a "link tab". Well, I don''t see any link tab, but I found the Add Existing Item... button. It seems to work.

For some reason when I try to ask VC NET about how to do this, it dosen''t wanna tell me - instead it gives me a huge list of irrelevant items.

Right click on the project in the Solution Explorer. Choose Configuration->Linker->Input in the treeview on the left. If you click in the grid for Additional Dependencies, a button with "..." on it should appear. Click it. Add the .lib''s you want there.

If you need to specify the directories in which to search for lib files, it can be done at Configuration->Linker->General->Additional Library Directories.
