I get a: cannot open include file: "SFML/graphics.hpp no such a file error when trying to dynamic link, I think this means I messed up when installing sfml, but I can't find where.
I've told the compiler where to find the header:


I've linked to the libraries:


And i've included the dlls:

I'm trying to run the testcode from the tutorial, on visual 2015, on windows 8
Anybody knows what goes wrong?

It seems the problem is in the preprocessor-parsing stage, (not linking stage), as it cannot find an SFML header. Have you copied the SFML hpp files into the C:\Users\merijin\Documents\sfml\lib? Didn't you want to put there something like C:\Users\merijin\Documents\sfml\include?

I copied the sfml folder from C:\Users\merijin\Documents\sfml\include into C:\Users\merijin\Documents\sfml\lib, still doesn't work

does
C:\Users\merijin\Documents\sfml\include

contain a folder named
SFML

and does that folder contain a file named Graphics.hpp

and can you make a screenshot of your error message

and can you post a screenshot of your
C:\Users\merijin\Documents\sfml\include\SFML

and can you post the screenshots on http://imgur.com/


some of your screenshots are a little blurry
I've tried opening them in a new window and zooming in, but that only made it worse.

Your path needs to include the SFML-2.3.2 as shown in your explorer window.
