 I wrapped some cyapi.lib functions for my python project. I am using MinGW(3.4.5) to compile and link my files.


But I always get g++ error as follows. Compiling of .cpp and .c files is successful. But it never succeed to link to cyapi.lib. I include all libs that I can think of, like setupapi.lib, user32.lib, kernel32.lib, etc.  I am sure cyapi.lib is accessible to my g++ compiler, and I am sure g++ accessed cyapi.lib, but somehow g++ cann't resolve the definition in cyapi.lib. 


No matter I use gcc.exe or g++.exe to compile wrapcyapi.cpp, the error stays. 


My question is: is cyapi.lib readable to gcc? What should I do?

I tried some replies in the forum, but no lucky.


Thanks in advance for any reply.

I'd better provide my command lines here. I tried many suggestions about link to a static lib, e.g. different orders, only compile .cpp, add different flags etc. none of them works. 


g++ -mno-cygwin -o -c wrapcyapi.o wrapcyapi.cpp


g++ -mno-cygwin -Wl, wrapcyapi.o -Bstatic -L./lib/x86 -lCyAPI -Wl, -Lc:\python27\libs -lpython27 -lmsvcr90 -o winusbext.pyd




I followed quick_start_guid.pdf to build a project on vc and it worked. I know cyapi.lib can be linked w/o problem. But why using g++ will cause this wired error?  




I have been working on this problem for 2 days. Could anybody help me?

I gave up using MinGW gcc/g++, and turn to use VC. I think cyapi.lib is only readable on VC. For those who want to link cyapi.lib in gcc/g++, I tried almost all methods I found online, but all failed. Don't waste your time trying again until Cypress provides a gcc/g++ linkable library.
