i hate the whole ****ing borland/vcc specific stuff…
alright, silentsno, this one’s bit me in the before.
the gl.lib files you’re d/l (from microsoft, keep in mind) are formatted for vc++.
borland doesn’t use the same .lib format…
you have to run a converter program to change from ms to borland.
the file is a console exe found in the bin directory of either the borland or vc++ directories( i assume u only have borland, so it HAS to be there ) it’s called coff2bin.exe or somesuch
you have to write a batch file, too, i think, because it’s 1.) a console program, and 2.) it take two arguments, one being the file to convert from, the other being the file being converted to.
the batch is something like this:
coff2bin FromDirectory\opengl32.lib ToDirector\opengl32.lib
see, you gotta put the files in different directories, cuz each has to have the same name, but coff2bin won’t let you.
you could also convert to a different filename, delete the first, and rename it…
hope it works, it’s been a long time since it bit me, but i’m pretty sure that’s how you fix it.
messy messy messy…
