You need to have OpenGLSupport_Debug.lib in the location ..\..\lib\Debug\OpenGLSupport_Debug.lib

You did not configure the visual studio project correctly with cmake.

Well i am confiuring everything correct i click cmake-gui then i select where i saved bullet-2.79-rev2440, then i click bullet-2.79and that is the folder where it gets everything. then output i just have in Microsoft visual c++ 2008 express edition in a folder i named bullet.
i configure with visual 9 2008 works then in the box below it comes up with this

Code: Select all

i have everything selected like it shows in the install directions i click generate does it. since im just trying out demos right now i jsut go straight to the demos in the bullet folder i mentioned earlier. then i debug it right away and it comes up with the same error as the first one ive redone this several times(5)

I even tried a older version

Project "BULLET_PHYSICS.sln" has to be compiled first. That will generate OpenGLSupport_Debug.lib.

Aside from checking if the library exists in the first place, are you sure you terminated all brackets correctly? VS tends to fail at linking if you forget a closing bracket in your code. Easy way to check is to see if intellisense puts the right colors on everything. If suddenly your text is all plain, you're definitely missing a bracket.
