Oh, and I forgot to mention (but didn't forget to do)

nmake /f Makefile.vc

which eventually (after some initial problems) completed without errors, so I have compiled the library from source.

Thanks a lot for your help guys, I'm *ALMOST* there now!

I downloaded LibTiff from ftp.remotesensing.org tiff-3.8.2.zip, installed it in C:\Program Files\tiff-3.8.2,

edited libtiff\tiffconf.h and commented out...

  /* #define JPEG_SUPPORT 1 */
  /* #define PIXARLOG_SUPPORT 1 */
  /* #define ZIP_SUPPORT 1 */

as suggested in the documentation (after discovering it was indeed necessary)

There is no tiff-3.8.2\include folder, but I found a bunch of *.h files in tiff-3.8.2\libtiff. Now in Visual Studio, in my TestLibTiff project I did

Project > Properties > C/C++ > Additional Include Directories, added

  "C:\Program Files\tiff-3.8.2\libtiff"

Project > Properties > Linker > Additional library directories, added

   "C:\Program Files\tiff-3.8.2\libtiff"

In stdafx.h added
  #include "tiffio.h"

then [F5] (build solution) and I get this error:

Error 1 error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol _TIFFOpen referenced in function _wmain TestTiffLib.obj

Error 2 fatal error LNK1120: 1 unresolved externals C:\Documents and Settings\Flight Landata\My Documents\Visual Studio 2005\Projects\TestTiffLib\Debug\TestTiffLib.exe 1 Any idea what I might be missing?

For Windows, I suggest just building libtiff yourself from source using nmake. See:

It seems rather backwards to me to use gcc on Windows unless you absolutely have to when you have access to such a great debugger like Visual Studio.
