See screen shot.  Files are there, but can't find any of them.  Out of frustration I just put them in the MinGW\lib path; but it still can't find them!
I'm really sore about this, files obviously exist and have read/write perms to them.  I tried from command line also without luck.

Compiling HelloWorld.c works; but when I try to add some external libraries it chokes.

The libraries I have are said to be compatible with win32/mingw. They also have a different download for MSVC which does work.

Frustrating. The ld.exe gives the full path and obviously there and I have permissions to read/write them. I also included them without path (they are in library path and path).

I don't understand why this isn't working.
