I am trying to link to a .lib file on Windows.
I have searched for solutions and tried using build.rs and a local .cargo/config but neither work. Here for example is the .cargo/config file:
[target.x86_64-pc-windows-msvc.DebenuPDFLibraryLIB1312] rustc-link-lib = ["DebenuPDFLibraryLIB1312"] rustc-link-search = ["C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Debenu\\PDF Library\\LIB"]
The file I’m trying to link against is
C:\Program Files (x86)\Debenu\PDF Library\LIB\DebenuPDFLibrary64DLL1312.lib.
The link error I get is
: LINK : fatal error LNK1181: cannot open input file 'DebenuPDFLibrary64DLL1312.lib'. This is preceded by the linker’s arguments which include the .lib’s name but not its path.
