Hello Jean-Sebastien

when I use your link

>"VisualStudio 7.1 -

I find the freetype219.lib, but I thought I need the never version of the
freetype (freetype235.lib?) libs.

Hello Ernesto,

> I have downloaded the 3rdParty dependencies form here

That's the old 3rdparty package, which is not useful anymore because we
need a newer version of the Freetype lib in particular, which is why
you're getting that error.

The Dependencies page clearly states where to get the dependencies for
VS7.1 (2003):


"VisualStudio 7.1 -

(Note that I removed the Visual Studio 7 item in the list, it was
misleading since VS7 is not really supported and it linked to the old
dependencies zip from 2005 which will not work as you discovered. The
page should now be more accurate.)

Hope this helps,
