@retep998 Yeah, it's definitely being linked, I see it in the linker output. Also if I remove the lib, it complains it can't even find it. However, on running dumpbin just now, I can't find the functions I'm trying to call.
I wonder if the library needs to be recompiled with the C external interface in or something.
Will look into it, Assimp's big enough that this kind of information should be available I guess.
