Thread: cannot open file 'dxguid.lib'

    Default cannot open file 'dxguid.lib'

    I have tried twice to setup clanlib and have followed the guide to a T exactly as described, but I still receive the error:

    Code:
    error LNK1104: cannot open file 'dxguid.lib'

    Clanlib needs Microsoft DirectX SDK:

    As I said I followed the guide, and therefor already have installed the SDK.

    Do you include the "Include Directroy" with "C:\Program\Microsoft DirectX SDK (Jan 2010)\Include" and insert the "Library Directory" with "C:\Program Files %28x86%29\Microsoft DirectX SDK (June 2010)\Lib\x86"?

    No actually, but then the guide did not mention that, maybe they need to update the guide :/

    The guide does not mention it, since the direct x sdk installer normally adds this automatically.

    Anyway, the wiki is open for anyone to edit, so feel free to fix it for the next user that comes around.

    Occasionally it does not add it automatically. I am not sure why. (here, it added it on one PC, but not another)
