We are using the CTIOS C++ CIL libraries to write an application with the Visual Studio 2005 environment. We are however, unable to build, since the compiler throws linker errors related to the lib files. We have tried using the Visual Studio 2003 environment for the same project and are able to build the code successfully. The CTIOS programmers guide does not have any information about the C++ CIL libraries support in VS 2005. It only says that All C++ applications using C++ CIL 7.1(1) must be built using Visual Studio .NET. Applications using C++ CIL 7.1(1) built with Visual C++ 6.0 are not supported. Kindly throw light on this issue.
CTI OS 7.5 (along with ICM/CCE 7.5) is planned to be available in Q3CY08. It will support VB2005 for C++ and .NET.

The C++ CIL 7.0 (C++ class libraries) have not been tested with the new compiler in VS .NET 2005, so if you use C++ CIL with it neither TAC or DE will support them.
This might change with CTIOS 7.5, will get the documentation updated to reflect it.
