I would appreciate your help on this one:
I am trying to compile the “hello world” project and this is what I get

JUCE! Linking to: jucelib_static_debug.lib
LINK : fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file "atlthunk.lib"
Error executing link.exe.

juce_application.exe - 1 error(s), 0 warning(s)"

I am using VC6 sp5, win2000. I tried to follow all the installation instructions, but probably I am missing something. Please let me know if you know what causing it.



Wierd. Have you got ATL turned on or something? My juce projects compile with it turned on or off (which means off normally but I tried it turned on). I’m using VC++7.1 though.

no idea mate. I’m sure Jules or someone will be along soon…


Hi - weird. Exact same problem here. VC6, SP5, processor pak installed (for sp5).

same exact link error. The reference to the atlthunk.lib is in the \PlatformSDK\include\atlbase.h

but thats all that I was able to figure out… there is no atlthunk.lib anywhere on my HD.

Nothing comes up on a MS search for atlthunk.


removing #include <atlbase.h> from juce_win32_Windowing.cpp (line 48) solved the problem - Thank you for the advice!


…ok, that’s interesting…

It does still seem to compile without that… which is strange, because I must have included it for a reason!

I guess I’ll get rid of that line for the next release, and hope there wasn’t some subtle reason that I’ve since forgotten!
