Compile and Debug

Include the CDSDK.H header file to use the C++ interface. CDSDK.H automatically links the program with the appropriate import library. Debug configurations link with the CDCORED.LIB, and the release configurations link with the CDCORE.LIB.

Note: You do not need to add the LIB to the LINK section of the project or makefile.

The CDCORED.lib and CDCORE.lib files contain the name of the DLL to dynamically load at run time and class definitions for the linker to resolve the Connect:Direct® SDK symbols included in the CDSDK.H file. When a program executes or a DLL is loaded, the appropriate CDCORE.DLL is loaded. Applying.DLL is dynamically loaded when a debug configuration is executed and to support a release configuration.
