Link error 1181

I got a Link error 1181 with fresh code from source safe. It is looking for a dll that is in the windows/system32 directory and cannot find it.
Linker Tools Error LNK1181
cannot open input file "filename"
The linker tool could not find "filename" because it does not exist or the path was not found.
So how do I set the path to it?
I do not see amy sort of system path in MSCONFIG to set.

as a mainframe coder even I link code and have to use a make file or two....

I think you need to contact the source provider to progress this - it has nothing to do with MSCONFIG for sure! There wil be an option to specify where load modules are picked up from on the linker, but if I had to second guess this I would say the developer has tragetted a different platform than the one you are working with. Certainly need more and different info to go any further.

Admiral Michael was, I guess, referring to picking up the source from some other site? This error code is to do with code preparation for execution and not in any way site specific...
