Hi Stew,

> ACE and added ACELIB as an additional library directory.  My

> the linker is unable to resolve any of the ACE symbols. Any ideas?

A common cause for this type of thing is a mismatch between the inline
settings of how ACE was built and how your application is built. If
mismatched, your app's build thinks the inlineable methods are not
inlined and reside in ACE.dll, but the ACE build was done the other
way, expecting apps to inline the methods, so they're not actually in

If this doesn't help, please use the PROBLEM-REPORT-FORM and supply
more details, or consider use of commercial support services.
