GaliB with VC++6

Assuming you have downloaded the galib244-win....

You will probably need to build the ga library.

Then, remove the existing galib.lib link from the example folder. Then add
files to project and look for the debug folder in the library folder and add
the galib.lib file to the example file project.

This should let VC++ know where to get the library (galib.lib).

You will need to add this link to all projects, including any new ones of
your own.

I've written before on this subject, and related issues, in the past and
this should be available somewhere in the archive.

Subject: GaliB with VC++6

I have tried to download and run and old, and now unsupported, workspace for
Visual C++ but I can't get it to work because of this error:

LINK : fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file
Error executing link.exe.

Could you explain it to me or better send to me a fully working workspace
concerning one of the exercises included with Galib (much better).

Thank you in advance for your attention

ps please note that I use VC++6 and I have never used libraries other than
the STL  and the standard headers (<isotram> and so on) so GaLib is a thing
pretty new to me to use
