Help needed: Linking error on basic program

Post by Duke95 » 2011-04-21T00:30:36-07:00


This is the program I am trying to run just to test if my installation of magick++ worked.

Code: Select all


using namespace std;
using namespace Magick;

void main()
	Image master;"test.jpg");



The compiling works fine but the linking stage crashes. I get 29 errors of this kind:

1>CORE_DB_libxml_.lib(nanohttp.obj) : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol __imp__WSAStartup@8 referenced in function _xmlNanoHTTPInit
1>CORE_DB_libxml_.lib(nanoftp.obj) : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol __imp__WSAStartup@8

I have followed the installation instructions step by step as they are given here:

But still, it seems I am missing a library which I am sure I've included in the project's "additionnal dependencies". If anyone has a idea, I would be glad to hear it.

Just so you know, I am working under Windows XP64bits with Visual Studio 2005.

Choose the Release version of the build. If that fails go to c:\Program Files\ImageMagick-6.6.9-Q16\Magick++_demos and choose the button workspace. Select the Release version and build and execute. Now use the button workspace as a template for your own project.
