Yeah the program is using precompiled headers.  And that explains why 
the first setup wasn't working.  I turned precompiled headers off and it 
started making the same LNK errors.  I've checked the linker settings 
and all appear to be fine,

Additional Library Directories: "C:\Program 
Files\MySQL\mysql++-2.2.1\Debug";"C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 
Additional Dependencies: libmysql.lib wsock32.lib mysqlpp.lib

I've tried playing with nearly every setting under Linker or C/C++ with 
no success.  I've tried including different libraries such as 
mysqlpp_util.lib as well as the above and it doesnt work.  Changing 
lib\debug to lib\opt doesn't help either.  This is beginning to be very 
frustrating as I really need to get this part of the project moving!  
The only things I can see remotely as out of place is in it 
says to have "C:\mysql++\vc\debug" as a library directory, but there are 
no files inside this directory... I have run the install.bat file and 
just copy + pasted the resulting folders from C:\mysql++ to C:\Program 
Files\MySQL\mysql++-2.2.1\ because that's where i've installed it.  To 
be safe I installed mysql++ to C:\mysql++ and ran the install.bat file 
again and got the same result

I'm pretty sure I followed all the instructions correctly but maybe I 
missed something there.  Also there is no such option as "Under 
Configuration Properties::General change "Use Managed Extensions" to 
"No"" that I can see (using visual studio 2005).

Thanks for any help,
