Visual Studio Reference [closed]

asked 2015-08-12 11:36:33 -0500

Hello Guys,

hope you are doing great!

I have a questions, is there a way to make a reference from my Visual Studio Solution to the Dlls if I place them in a separate directory? Right now it is throwing this error:

A reference to "'dll location' could not be added. please make sure that the file is accesible and that it is a valida assembly or COM component.

Any ideas?

In Visual Studio, references are for assembly (.Net dll) or COM object. You can't reference your C++ dependencies in that way.

But for loading information about dll in the windows system, you should read this article from Microsoft: Article
