Release/link issues with VS10 & SFML2.0
« on: September 12, 2019, 05:09:11 pm »
Hello everyone,,,
So I've made a basic application using SFML 2.0.  I'd like to be able to release it as a single .exe to use on other computers, for example, but when running it on my wife's PC I get 'You don't have sfml-graphics.dll' type errors (as she obviously doesn't have SFML installed).

Until now I have been using -d.lib's and everything has been fine.  The release version runs properly on my PC.  I'm a pretty huge noob, so even getting the release version to run properly without the console window caused some grief.  I had to change the SubSystem and Entry point... or something (this was all done blindly via Google, have no clue what I really did).  I only mention that in case it's causing issues, although it's probably not.

I tried using sfml-graphics-s.lib, but it doesn't even compile.  Not sure if that was for 1.6 only or I've done something wrong somewhere.  I know I have to link the .lib's properly somewhere, but I'm lost on how to do it.  Any help is appreciated.

If you're linking dynamically you need to provide SFML DLL alongside your exe.

If you don't want to provide the DLL, and want to link statically (-s) instead you'll need to follow the tutorial carefully, and if it still doesn't work show us what you did and what the errors are.
It should be easy because I think in 2.0 you only have to define SFML_STATIC and link the -s version of SFML libraries.

I am using Qt Creator for an SFML project. The problem I am currently experiencing is that my application will crash on a certain line of code only if I am running in release mode. shareit vidmate apk
