QTMLClient.lib Link Error When Building Win32 VST Example


I’ve just tried to build the VST example for the first time and keep getting this link error on Visual C++ Express Edition:

1>LINK : fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file ‘QTMLClient.lib’

Initially I was getting errors because the compiler couldn’t find the Quicktime SDK and VST SDK but I’ve sorted out all the necessary #include directives and eventually it started linking! But then the linking error happened and I don’t know how to sort it.

I know QTMLClient.lib exists and is where it should be so how can I avoid this error? I tried to not use the Quicktime SDK but I can’t find where the juce_config.h file is located on the VST project so I can’t disable the flag! Please help!

You just need to add the right path to the compiler’s library search path - it’s hidden away in the tools/options panel somewhere.


Thanks for the quick reply jules!Thats sorted it out straight away, looking forward to starting my Gate! This is how I added the search path:

  1. Click the Project tab and open the properties.

  2. Click the Linker folder.

  3. Click the General property page.

  4. Modify the Additional Library Directories property.
