Trying to build a software using VS2017 but cannot get past the following unresolved externals at the linking:

I am using the latest 11.18.2 release and have built the required files using VS2017 already. Now I am trying to compile an application using FlexLM license methods.

@almamun  Try adding the compiler flag /TC if you are getting any warning from the compiler

Lm_new.obj is used in when linking statically in Windows. You will need it if you get the "l_n36_buf" error when linking with FLEXlm libraries or use lc_new_job() function in your code.

Make sure all the libraries below are available 

oldnames.lib kernel32.lib user32.lib netapi32.lib \
gdi32.lib comdlg32.lib comctl32.lib wsock32.lib shell32.lib \
Rpcrt4.lib oleaut32.lib Ole32.lib Wbemuuid.lib wintrust.lib crypt32.lib Ws2_32.lib iphlpapi.lib Psapi.lib advapi32.lib Shlwapi.lib dhcpcsvc.lib userenv.lib

Most are resolved using the Windows SDK libraries except for this one now:

 

libpwcflexlm.lib(cfflex.obj) : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol _l_n36_buf
lmgr_trl.lib(lm_njob.obj) : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol _l_n36_buf
