Noob Q: LNK1104: cannot open...'jucelib_static_Win32.lib'

Hello, I’ve just recently discovered the magnificent Juce and it has encouraged me to take a shot at C++. Delphi and C# are currently my meat and potatoes.

Using VS2005/Juce1.39 and haydxn’s StartingPoint tutorial, I am able to get a ‘Debug’ build to compile and run fine, but when I switch to ‘Release’, the build fails with “fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file ‘jucelib_static_Win32.lib’” .

Since I can’t seem to locate that file anywhere in the Juce folder, it makes me think it’s a configuration problem.


Did you build JUCE in release mode? You must have built it in debug already, right?

Your talking about building Juce, and not my project. Right? Let me check into that…

Yup, that was the problem. Looks like I have lots to learn. I’m sure this won’t be near the last noob question I’ll have.

Thanks alot!
