Check the VC++ directories, in VS 2010 these can be found in your project properties. Check whether
$(WindowsSdkDir)\lib is included in the directories list, if not, manually add it. If you're building for X64 platform, you should select X64 from the “Platform” ComboBox, and make sure that
$(WindowsSdkDir)\lib\x64 is included in the directories list.
