I'm trying to compile a c++ source file in visual studio 2015 which uses the port audio API, after downloading and compiling port audio I need to link the dll/lib files and any header files I need for the program. I managed to include the .lib and .h files easily but I am having trouble with the portaudio x86.dll file not being found, I don't know what problem is causing this or what further linking is required to include portaudio_x86.dll
Error message, .dll not found?
successfully included the.lib file, dll is in the same directory!!
linked the .lib file in additional directories, should I do the same with the .dll file here?
similar question at this link, helped my a little bit but didn't solve my problem :Visual studio 2010, PortAudio DLL compile and linking issues, C++
