problem with linking tbb3 in visual studio 2010 - 'cannot open input file 'tbb.libkernel32.lib''

Hi

I've just set up a solution in visual studio for tbb 3.0 using previously existing code that compiled with tbb 2.1. I imported the code into an entirly new project.

I've followed the setup instructions
- set the environment variable in windows 7
- added '$(TBB3_INSTALL_DIR)\\include\\; to C++->General->additional include directories'
- added '$(TBB3_INSTALL_DIR)\\lib\\ia32\\vc10\\;' to linker->General->additional library dependancies
- added (for release configuration) 'tbb.lib' to Linker->Input->additional dependancies.

But when I compile I get the error:

'LINK : fatal error LNK1181: cannot open input file 'tbb.libkernel32.lib'

There is no such file, and I don't quite know how to solve this.

Any help?

I guess you forgot a space between tbb.lib and kernel32.lib in the "additional dependencies".

I tried that. It just wouldn't work. I went on to have all sorts of weird linker errors, so I went back to my previous VC10 console project files and just updated them to use TBB3.

The problems gone now. Not before losing me a whole days productivity alas :(

Thanks for the answer Alexey
