If you specify some folder path in "additional include directories" for a project, you can then #include a file using a relative path to that folder. But the same doesn't seem to apply to "additional library directories" when used with #pragma comment(lib). You always get a linker error that it can't find the file. It seems as though it's only looking for a file with that name in the additional lib folder, not concatenating the paths together then resolving the result.

Thanks for the suggestion.

The problem has been fixed in our code and the fix will be included in our future release. For now the work around is to specify the exact directory (under the root of which the required lib exists) using /LIBPATH. Please contact Microsoft PSS if you need a hotfix of this issue for VS 2010.

Thank you,
