Compiling error with WiX 3.8

May 26, 2014 at 12:56 PM
Hi, I'm getting an error when compiling the sources against WiX 3.8:
1>dutil.lib(thmutil.obj) : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol __imp__AlphaBlend@44 referenced in function "long __stdcall DrawImage(struct THEME *,struct tagDRAWITEMSTRUCT ,struct THEME_CONTROL const )" (?DrawImage@@YGJPAUTHEME@@PAUtagDRAWITEMSTRUCT@@PBUTHEME_CONTROL@@@Z) 1>Release\wixextba.dll : fatal error LNK1120: 1 unresolved externals

Can you help me, please

I got the same error, but I managed to build after I added "Msimg32.lib" in Linker=>Input: Additional Dependencies on the "wixextba" project.

Yes "Msimg32.lib" needs to be added. I have updated the source to include this and a couple of extra fixes I added for 3.8 support.
