Problem with installation *SOLVED*
« on: October 09, 2007, 01:19:19 am »

I found the problem, somehow i missed the last part in the tutorial, the Linker part was the problem.

Just installed SFML and followed the tutorial for VS, but I have problems when I try to compile this code, from the tutorial for VS.

Code: [Select]
#include <SFML/System.hpp>
#include <iostream>

int main()
    sf::Clock Clock;
    while (Clock.GetElapsedTime() < 5.f)
        std::cout << Clock.GetElapsedTime() << std::endl;

    return 0;

I have Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition installed and downloaded "Microsoft Platform SDK for Windows Server 2003 R2" because there where some problems with the "windows.h" file.

But when im trying to compile, this problem occurs

Code: [Select]

Im new to this so I dont know where I should start looking.
