Thanks for the help Joel,
 My VS Says the following
I have copied from the menu item I see, is there a way to have VS print out
the configurations...if so please let me know the command and I will print
it out.

Additional Library Directories C:\Program Files\botan
Link Library Dependencies Yes
Use Library Dependency inputs No
Prevent dll binding No
Please let me know if you need additional info....a note on how to retrieve
it would help much.

>If not, please provide your build and linker options (as reported by VS)

Subject: Re: [botan-devel] Setting up Botan with VC++ getting cannot open
file 'botan.expkernel32.lib'


I am attempting to get set up with Botan in Windows with Visual Studio.
However when I build with the file hash.cpp I get the following error.

I have pointed to the botan.lib from VC++...

1>------ Build started: Project: BotanTest1, Configuration: Debug Win32

1>LINK : fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file 'botan.expkernel32.lib'

========== Build: 0 succeeded, 1 failed, 0 up-to-date, 0 skipped ==========

Any help appreciated.
