Static Version of PDF Creator Pilot with MS Visual Studio 2010

 

What is the difference between dynamic (.dll) and static (.lib) libraries and when is it appropriate to use which?

To build an application with static library, the C++ compiler must know where the header and library files are, and what libraries to link against.

Within Visual Studio, right click on your project in the Solution Explorer and bring up the project's Properties dialog. You need to change the settings for both Debug and Release versions. In the Configuration field, select All Configurations.

  1. Change Platform Toolset. Select Configuration Properties and, choose the General options. In the Platform Toolset choose vc100 item.

  2. Change Additional Library Directories. Choose the General options in the Linker category of properties. In the Additional Library Directories property, enter path to the directory where PDFCreatorPilot.lib is placed.

  3. Next, you must tell the linker what library files to use. Select the Linker category of properties and, pick the Input options. In the Additional Dependencies property input the name of static library (StaticPDFCreator_x86_debug.lib).

    Platform Toolset

Then add header files (PDFDocumentTypes.h, StaticPDFDocument4.h) in your project for using PDF document's objects. Please, download the sample code for static pdf library.
