[mpich-discuss] Link Error Using MPICH2 with Visual Studio 2010

 You have to specify the include (<MPICH2-INSTALL-DIR>\include) and lib (<MPICH2-INSTALL-DIR>\lib) directories in Visual Studio (where <MPICH2-INSTALL-DIR> is typically "C:\Program Files\MPICH2"). Look into the sample projects to see the settings required.
 Also make sure that you are linking with the right libraries (e.g. 64-bit applications require 64-bit libs.).

Subject: [mpich-discuss] Link Error Using MPICH2 with Visual Studio 2010

I have installed MPICH2 on a Windows machine.  I was able to compile and run the sample projects using Visual Studio 2010.  I am trying to use MPICH2 with another program that uses MPI. When the project tries to link, I get messages about unresolved external symbols:


I assume, I am missing a library somewhere.  I am new to using MPICH2, so any help would be greatly appreciated.
