« on: February 14, 2019, 08:03:57 am »
When Attempting to build and run the test program:
(click to show/hide)

I get this Error:
(click to show/hide)
If I could get some help that would really be useful.

My computer specs if that helps :
(click to show/hide)
I believe I am using version SFML 2.5.1 x64 on VS2017-V15.8.9
Let me know if there is anything else I can grab that would help more.

Sounds like you defined SFML_STATIC but are linking SFML dynamically.

Okay, so I removed the SFML_STATIC; now im getting an error about sfml-window-2.dll was not found. How would  I go about fixing that? just declare it with the others?

You copy the DLL next to your executable, as described in the official tutorial. ;)
