#2 Problem linking VS2005 Express Edition


I'm trying to build the Blitz++ library in VS2005,
using Jan Kuiken's Visual C++ 2005 Express
Edition .sln. I compile the solution without errors
but in the linking process I get:

LINK : fatal error LNK1104: cannot open
file '../release/blitz.lib'

How can I solve the problem?

    I have not personally used VS2005 or Jan Kuiken's solution
    file for blitz. You might try writing to Jan directly at
    jan.kuiken@chello.nl. Normally this sort of problem occurs
    because the search path for the library is not quite right.
    In your case, it is looking for the release (optimized)
    version of the blitz library using a relative path. So you
    just need to make sure that the library exists in the
    expected directory relative to where you are building.
    Which application are you trying to link?

    Thanks juilianc, I wrote to Jan. I think that you're
    right: Is a problem with the library search path. I hope
    solve this problem soon. Thanks again.

    Were you ever able to resolve this problem with linking
    applications using the VC++ 2005 Express Edition .sln
    files for blitz? I would like to close this bug report if
    there is no longer a problem.
