Just started out a new sample project that illustrates how to use the WM libraries I'm writing, and got the following link errors:
1>wmfw.lib(Image.obj) : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol CLSID_ImagingFactory
1>wmfw.lib(Image.obj) : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol IID_IImagingFactory
This means that the linker cannot find the symbols CLSID_ImagingFactory and
IID_IImagingFactory, required to use the imaging library on Windows Mobile. If you look at the documentation, you will see that a link to the imaging.lib file is required but it will not work (at least it does not work for me).
The solution I found is to force the inclusion of these symbols using a dummy file that I usually name guids.cpp. Here's the content:
The initguid.h include redefines the DEFINE_GUID macro that is used by imgguids.h so that it declares a GUID along with its value instead of making an external reference to the same symbol.
Compile and link and the error goes away.
