Hi @744f1674,

Thanks for the post. Our SDK demo should work with VS2019. I saw in your Screenshot4, you are building the solution with Release and x64. Please note that our SDK currently only supports x86(https://marketplace.zoom.us/docs/sdk/native-sdks/windows/getting-started/build-run-play) so change it to x64 will not succeed.

Hope this helps. Thanks!

Thanks. I hit the scroll button while selecting the platform dropbox and didn’t notice that it changed the selection to x64 (that’s happened to me before). The top of the build output scrolled off the screen so I missed that the output that revealed that platform was incorrect. I was focused on the linker errors at the bottom of the build output.

With platform set to x86 it builds as expected (there are, however, multiple warnings about the detection of unsafe method calls: i.e. – _wsprintf() instead of _wsprintf_s(), etc., but it’s a demo so I guess that’s acceptable.)

Hi @744f1674,

Thanks for the reply and glad to hear that it is working now. Happy Zooming! :slight_smile:
