    Hello,

    I've just downloaded the zip package and I've been reading the documentation pdf file. In the beginning of the document it explains that this library can also be build on MINGW under windows, but I can't find any other guidelines about how to do this. I would like to use this library in my C++ application and therefor build libjson as .dll library. Then I can refer to this library file and include the header files to start using it. Any help is apreciated.

    Thanks, Steph.

    Hello Libjson Group,

    I have been having similar issues getting started. In short, what do I need to do in order to use libjson on Windows / Visual Studio 2012?

    I apologize that my question is not more specific.

    I have successfully installed MINGW and am able to run make, but it outputs .a files. Changing suffix_shared to .dll and compiling with "make SHARED=1" did not work, I ended up with libjson.dll.7.6.1

    Opening the visual studio project file resulted in visual studio (2012) telling me I had to auto-update the project, which fails every time I do so.

    Thanks in advance
