Unresolved External Symbol

Aug 17, 2015 at 4:14 PM
I'm using the current stable download and compiling the toolkit myself; Desktop 2013. I'm getting this error during linking:

1>Font.obj : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol "public: void __thiscall DirectX::SpriteBatch::End(void)" (?End@SpriteBatch@DirectX@@QAEXXZ) referenced in function "public: void __thiscall FontType::PrintMessage(int,int,class std::basic_string<wchar_t,struct std::char_traits<wchar_t>,class std::allocator<wchar_t> >,union __m128)" (?PrintMessage@FontType@@QAEXHHV?$basic_string@_WU?$char_traits@_W@std@@V?$allocator@_W@2@@std@@T__m128@@@Z) 1>C:\Users\Administrator.S322-INST\Desktop\FontExample\Debug\FontExample.exe : fatal error LNK1120: 1 unresolved externals

I can successfully build using a 'nuget' installed version, but I'd rather not do that for each project.

Any thoughts to what might be causing it? I saw in other threads it was to do with wide character support, but I checked the settings for both the toolkit and my project and they both are set up correctly.

Bizarrely.... The .h files were out of date in my project. Copying the new headers over worked.
