c++.command-line - help with 3rd party library

Hi,
I'm new to DMC (I bought the CD) and am trying to build a .exe, console app
from the command line in a console window, using a serial comm library from
MarshallSoft (WSC4C).  If I run dmc I get "Error 42: Symbol Undefined" for
symbols in wsc32.lib The PATH is set so it should see them, shouldn't it?
If I just compile and then LINK from the command line and specify the
library it returns "Error 43: Not a valid library file"  Is this a switch
setting problem?  I'm a hardware eng. new to Windows programming (what a
learning curve!)  Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Steve K.

Ask MarshallSoft what format their library is in.
