Although this procedure is specific to Microsoft™ Visual C++ 6.0, you can use it as a guideline to set up alternate development environments.



Although this procedure is specific to Microsoft™ Visual C++ 6.0, you can use it as a guideline to set up alternate development environments.
To set up your development environment to use the FCI Library, follow this procedure:
  1. Create a new Win32 Dynamic-Link Library project.
  2. Add the API include file to your project. This folder is located at:
  3. <API Installation Folder>/include/

  4. Include pe_cc.lib in your project.
  5. Set the Preprocessor Definitions in your project to WINDOWS.
  6. If you are using Microsoft Visual Studio .NET, you must set the project to use a Multithreaded dll. (You can find this option under Project -> Properties. Open the C/C++ > Code Generation folder, and set the Run-time drop-down list to Multi-threaded DLL.)
  7. Set your project to output files with an .ifx extension.
