Trouble with SDL <SOLVED>
I'm trying to help a friend with a problem. When debugging the program I get the error "LNK1104: cannot open file 'SDL.dll.lib'
From what I can tell everything is referencing the right file.
RC_FILE = monterey.rc
DEFINES += SDL_WIN
LIBS += -L../Monterey/depends/windows/
LIBS += -lSDL.dll
Since it could not find the SDL.dll.lib file I checked the depends/windows folder and there wasn't a lib file there. So I downloaded the Win32:
SDL-devel-1.2.15-VC.zip (Visual C++) Development library and extracted it. Then I moved the SDLmain.lib, SDL.lib and SDL.dll files to the depends/windows folder. Then I renamed the SDL.lib to SDL.dll.lib. After that, it debugged and ran fine! :)
