Hi Jack

Thank you for your help. I'm sorry for my poor English, what I would say
is I failed in linking my VC6 project to the botan library. I already
succeed in building the library with VC 2010. Is it possible to link my
project to the botan library with VC6.

No, Visual C++ 6 does not support C++98 well enough to compile
botan, or at least this was the case the last time anyone
attempted it. VC 2003 and 2005 worked fine, though it also has
not been tested anytime recently (at least to my knowledge). 2008
and 2010 both work well.

You might be able to compile the library using a more recent
compiler and call it from a VC6 compiled application.
