Soil Installation Problems

No matter what I seem to do, I cannot figure out how to properly install SOIL. I am extremely new to Visual Studios, along with linking in other libraries. I can’t find any guide’s to install it on Google, and was hoping someone would give me VERY basic instructions on how to go about the process.

Please, please dumb everything down as much as possible. I loved using openGL in the last class I took and i’m hoping to further my education on it by using SOIL to load in textures. I’ve spent a good 8 hours or so trying to figure it out on my own and I haven’t gotten anywhere, so I’m desperately looking for guidance.

I am using Microsoft Visual 2010 Express.

Thanks so much for your time,
