Using SDL_mixer-1.2.12, can't find import library


I’m using Visual Studio 2019 on Windows 10. I’m compiling for 32 bits.

I have this old application, a game, that someone wants me to compile. One of its requirements is the SDL_mixer-1.2.12. I found that they have the dll for that, but I couldn’t find the import library, i.e. sdl_mixer.lib. I attempted to build SDL_mixer-1.2.12, but it turns out there are a lot of dependencies, so it’s not so easy.

Does anyone know where I can find the import library for the DLL? 32 bits version.

Thanks for any help!


Not sure if you saw below?:

Hello, thanks for the reply.

I have seen that page. That’s where I downloaded the file with the dll,, but I couldn’t find the import library for it.

It doesn’t answer that question, but in principle you could use late binding (LoadLibrary and GetProcAddress in Windows) and not bother with the import library at all.

I guess you’re right. I’m hoping for the import lib, but I might try that.
