Title: Compiling in Visual Studio
Post by: DwD on January 29, 2006, 02:58:45 pm
First of all let me just say, I was happy to find other people enjoyed this game as much as I did when I first played it.  I have kept literally every game I ever bought, boxes and documentation included.  Star Control II was and is one of my favorites.  Recently, I was going through my library and weeding out the loosers.  I decided to try SC2 using DOSBox, with limited success.  Then I found The Urquan Masters.   ;D

I am having some trouble compiling on Win XP with Visual Studio 6.  I have all the required libraries and have included them in my project directories, but I'm still getting an error about vorbisfile.lib;   :'(

LINK : fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file "vorbisfile.lib"

I do have the latest versions of the development libraries.  Do I need an older version?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

which version of visual studio do you have?

because i have 2003 and 2005 and for some reason 2005 won't compile uqm but 2003 will.

(i'm trying to pinpoint why UQM wont compile on VS2005)

hmmm,  I'm not sure. I think it's 2003.  Actually, it's a student version that I can use as much as I want for myself, but I cannot release anything I compile with it to the public.  Of course, any code I write on it, I CAN give to someone else to compile and release.   ;)

I figured it out.  Thought I had all library paths included, but I missed one.

BTW, I do have another version of Visual Studio now, so I can publish executables.
