  1. Learning Visual C++ 2012

      So if I were to add foo.lib to my project using that, would I need to move the library to somewhere special? Or could I just do the full path to foo.lib?       I like that idea. Do I just edit the library directories field in there? Just out of curiousity, what's the Library WinRT Directories?
  2. Setting up DXUT.lib

    Really? Well then, I'll figure out what I need to include then for it all to work. Thanks for the help! :D
  3. So I'm a computer science major learning in C++, but my school doesn't teach us using Visual Studio. I know how to do a lot of the basics of programming, so instead I'm looking more for how to do advanced stuff with Visual Studio.   Namely how to deal with adding my own libraries to a project and getting them to work, or more generally anything involving the Project Properties window. Do you guys know anywhere that can teach me how to do that?
  4. So, I've been reading Game Coding Complete 4th edition for a while, and I decided to take a crack at actually starting to code it for myself. I started by looking at the source code for the initialization sequence, found here.   Right now I'm just trying to set up some of the pragma comments. For now I'm going to ignore the bullet stuff and just focus on getting the framework down. At the moment I have this: #pragma comment(lib, "shell32.lib") #pragma comment(lib, "advapi32.lib") #pragma comment(lib, "DXUT.lib") #pragma comment(lib, "dxutopt.lib") When I try to build this, I get an error saying that DXUT.lib can't be found. I looked around and I saw that I had to build it myself, so I built it and got an object file library and a bunch of other things, which I tried moving to a /lib folder in the project directory. Still didn't work.   The lib folder path is Documents//Visual Studio 2012//Projects//[ProjectName]//lib I also tried putting the lib folder in //[ProjectName]//[ProjectName], but that didn't work either.   I have an inherited library path of $(VCInstallDir)lib, am I putting it in the right place? If so, do I need to do something special with DXUT?
