I have a link problem in one of my projects which contains one exe and several static libs in a Visual Sutdio 2013 project.
The executable name is exec.library and rely on several static libs (intuition.library and graphics.libray to name a few).
Intuition.library calls functions in graphics.library and of course, exec.library calls functions in both graphics.library and intuition.library.
This little drawing will help in understanding the interdependences :
+-------+ exec +-----+
| +------+ |
| intuition +-------> graphics |
I have the following (french) error :
1>intuition.library.lib(OpenScreen.obj) : error LNK2019: symbole externe non résolu _ScreenToFront référencé dans la fonction _OpenScreen
1>D:\dev\MimicOS\SysCore\Debug\kernel.exe : fatal error LNK1120: 1 externes non résolus
ScreenToFront() and OpenScreen() functions are from intuition.library. When I compile intuition.library and graphics.library, everything is fine.
On the other hand, when I compile exec.library (which uses intuition and graphics library), I have this error. What is confusing is that these two functions are derived from the same static lib (intuition.library) ...
From what I understand, the problem lies in the fact that intuition.libray (a static library) and graphics.library (which is a static library too) calls each others.
In my fruitless search on the net, I came across several articles that may be may be related:
For those who have the courage to download the project (500KB), everything is available here: https://mimicos.codeplex.com/SourceControl/latest
Someone would have an idea?
