Re: Cannot open Libdb.lib while compile VC++ slapd project


I've never installed openldap on windows before but I'll take a wild guess. In UNIX, a database is required and the sleepycat Berkeley db is often used (I used ver 3.3.11 with openldap-2.0.18 on solaris 2.7 sparc) so i'm assuming that you need to have this installed BEFORE you install openldap and this would install the necessary libraries for openldap to work.

good luck

The procedure suggests renaming the libdb32.lib link reference to libdb.lib
for all component projects.

However, the libdb.lib does not exist!

Kindly suggest.
