To build the sample applications in this book, you must deal with compiler and linker switch settings. I have tried to isolate these details from the sample applications by putting almost all of these settings in a single header file, called CmnHdr.h, which is included in all of the sample application source code files.
Because I wasn’t able to put all of the settings in this header file, I made some changes to each sample application’s project properties. After selecting all projects, I displayed the Properties dialog box and then made the following changes from the Configuration Properties section:
On the General tab, I set the Output Directory so that all final .exe and .dll files go to a single directory.
