I have created an application which references a dll for implementation.But everytime I try building the program,I am getting a linker error as follows:
LINK : fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file ''kernel32.lib
Also,I have gone in the VCProjectDefaults directory, on my system it is under C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\VCProjectDefaults. I have checked corewin_express.vcprops. There is an attribute there called AdditionalDependencies.I am sure that it has kernel32.lib in there. It reads something like:
AdditionalDependencies="kernel32.lib user32.lib gdi32.lib winspool.lib comdlg32.lib advapi32.lib shell32.lib ole32.lib oleaut32.lib uuid.lib odbc32.lib odbccp32.lib"
Also I am not including these .lib files in my linker>input>additional dependencies,since they are present here,but then I get an error:
LINK : fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file 'LIBCMTD.lib'
Then in order to remove this error I made the following changes in my code:
Then I get the following error:
LINK : fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file 'OLDNAMES.lib'

Does this happens to any other new created visual c++ projects? It looks very un-common but one thing that do in common is that all these libraries are reside in $(VCInstallDir)lib, which is "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\lib" for most machines. So please try to verify this:
In Tools | Options | Project and Solution | VC++ Directories | Show Directories For -> Library files, make sure "$(VCInstallDir)lib" is in the list, if there is no such item in the list or the item is wrong, please add "$(VCInstallDir)lib" to the list.
hope it makes sense
