Hi,

I'm having trouble building Libtiff in Windows, both on a win32 XP machine, and also on a 64-bit Vista machine. I have the same problem on both machines. Maybe I'm making a simple mistake. Can somebody help me?

I downloaded the Windoz binaries from http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/tiff.htm (maybe this is the problem for my 64-bit Vista machine, although it SHOULD work, but thats why I tried again with my win32 XP machine) and installed it at

C:\Program Files (x86)\GnuWin32

I opened a new Win32 Console Application project named "TestTiff".

Under Header Files, in stdafx.h I added the line:

    #include "tiffio.h"

In Project > Properties > C/C++ > Additional Include Directories I added

    "C:\Program Files (x86)\GnuWin32\include"

In Project > Properties > Linker > Additional Library Dependencies I added

    "C:\Program Files\GnuWin32\lib

Then in TestTiff.cpp after int _tmain(int argc, _TCHAR* argv[]){ I added

    // Open Tif Image
    TIFF* tifImg = TIFFOpen("TestImage.tif", "r");

(making sure to have a "TestImage.tif" in the local folder). But when I tried to build, I got:

Linking...

LINK: Fatal error LNK1104: Cannot open file 'C:\Program Files (x86)\GnuWin32\lib\libtiff.lib;'

This was all on the Vista 64 machine (the "Program Files (x86)" folder is for 32-bit programs)

When I did exactly the same sequence on my Win32 XP machine, and tried to build, I got:

error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol __imp__TIFFOpen referenced in function _wmain.

fatal error LNK1120: 1 unresolved externals.

What am I doing wrong?
