Getting Started with GTK VS and VC ++ Express

GTK VS Summary

Recommendation : Before Starting you should read this minimal sample showing why you should take care about not mixing
c runtimes in your applications

This Quick Start Guide assumes that you installed GTK VS runtimes
and the GTK development package
1. Create a new console project using VC ++ Express
2. Include necessary Headers : you can paste GTK includes search path from here:
"$(GTK)\include";"$(GTK)\include\glib";"$( GTK)\include\gmodule";"$(GTK)\include\gthread";"$(GTK)\include\gobject";"$(GTK)\include\cairo";"$(GTK)\include\gdk";"$(GTK)\include\gtk";

3. SET THE RUNTIME to dynamic libraries (Multi Threaded Debug DLL or Multi Threaded DLL) if not set
4 Add the following preprocessor definitions :
if using zlib , ZLIB_DLL must be defined
if using libpng , PNG_DLL must be defined

5 Add the $(GTK)\libs path to the Additionnal Library Path
6 Add GTK libraries External Dependencies
