hardburn's scratchpad

Trying to compile a program on Win32. The MS compiler suite (free version) is at "E:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual C++ Toolkit 2003", and the MS SDK is at "E:\Program Files\Microsoft Platform SDK". ActiveState Perl 5.8.4 is at "E:\Perl".

Compile goes fine, but link gives error:

link @"src\My\Games\Azure.lds" -out:"blib\arch\auto\My\Games\Azure\Azu +re.dll" Creating library blib\arch\auto\My\Games\Azure\Azure.lib and object + blib\arch\auto\My\Games\Azure\Azure.exp Azure.obj : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol _abs referenced +in function _rects_collide LINK : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol __DllMainCRTStartup@1 +2 blib\arch\auto\My\Games\Azure\Azure.dll : fatal error LNK1120: 2 unres +olved externals

The "msvcrt.lib" file does not appear in the SDK under "lib\", but it is under "lib\AMD64" Shouldn't there be a non-AMD64 version? I'm running on an AMD64, but I need to make this program work on IA32 archs. Will linking to the AMD64 version cause problems there?

Relevent environment vars:

echo %PATH% E:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual C++ Toolkit 2003\bin;E:\Perl\bin;e:\ +Perl\lib;C:\WINDOWS\system32;C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\System32\Wbem echo %LIB% E:\Program Files\Microsoft Platform SDK\Lib\AMD64;E:\Program Files\Mic +rosoft Visual C++ Toolkit 2003\lib;E:\Program Files\Microsoft Platfor +m SDK\Lib;E:\Perl\bin;E:\Perl\lib; echo %INCLUDE% E:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual C++ Toolkit 2003\include;E:\Program +Files\Microsoft Platform SDK\Include;E:\Perl\lib\CORE;

I'm not sure what other libraries I need to get this to work correctly.
