Basically, when you read the actual error you can see that there is an error in the linker. This means that you are either:

  • Not adding the correct libraries in your project linker options
  • Not using the correct libraries (meaning x32 bit on x64 bit systems)
  • Not adding the library location to your system path variable

The following installation guide handles all necessary steps. Please check again that you have not yet forget some stuff.

Guide is for windows 7 x64 bit but it shows all necessary steps that you also apply on other systems.
