LNK1104: cannot open file 'ent.lib' RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    Im trying to make an online game using ENet and Cocos2d..

    I defined the include folder and the libs as well everything is good for the server side and it compiled and working 100%

    But when i tried to do the same for client side it gave me this really strange error 

    LNK1104: cannot open file 'ent.lib'

    Things i already tried:

    -checkd if the lib and the include files really exsist

    -deleted the libs and the include folder and tried again

    -restart VS2017 / Windows / Windows File explorer

    -Checked the .lib file permission


    Please Help me with this error its driving me crazy since yesterday..

    Thanks in advance

  • There are two pieces required for libraries. You must specify what the library is but you must also specify where the library is. In the project properties look at the "Library Directories" in the "VC++ Directories".

    This is a common beginner misunderstanding. Certainly there are many previous questions like this with answers.
