Thread: Trouble with LNK1104 and dinput8.lib

    Default Trouble with LNK1104 and dinput8.lib

    Hi guys. I'm having a bit of trouble getting a simple app running. I got it to compile without problems but I've been struggling with a series of linker errors. I managed to solve most of them but this one doesn't seem to go away:

    LINK : fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file 'dinput8.lib'

    From other posts it seems that dinput8.lib replaces dinput.lib, but I cannot seem to find dinput8.lib. I installed the DX SDK suggested in

    What should I do?

    Thanks in advance guys=)

    I figured it out after a loooong time. It was a very stupid mistake=)

    I had set to include C:\Program Files\Microsoft DirectX SDK (February 2007)\Lib rather than C:\Program Files\Microsoft DirectX SDK (February 2007)\Lib\x86. My bad!

    The reason it took me a while was cuz somehow the Windows search function was not finding dinput8, although I was able to find it by hand. O well.

    Default Thanks for the solution

    I've recnently installed ClanLib, as i'm a training game developer. I finished installing all remaining libraries, but when i compile the examples that cam e with ClanLib i came across the same Linker error, I just want to say thanks for the solution to the problem, for it as helped me compile the code, I only now have to upgrade my OpenGL from 1.5.0 to a higher version.

    Thanks once again.
