Hi all -- I recently did a scratch install of WinXP Pro on my laptop, and
was (once again) bitten by osgdb_curl dependency on wldap32.lib.
After installing the operating system, I installed Visual Studio 2005
Standard Edition, and accepted all the defaults. When building OSG,
everything built fine except for osgdb_curl, which could not find
wldap32.lib. This file was not installed as part of the Visual Studio 2005
To resolve this issue, I did two things:
1. I downloaded and installed "MS Windows SDK for MS Server 2008". Anyone
should be able to find where to download this by doing a web search. This is
a huge download / install, so plan accordingly.
2. In the VS GUI, open Tools > Options. Then open Projects and Solutions >
VC++ Directories, and select Library files from the "Show Directories For"
menu. Add this directory to the list:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v6.1\Lib

I hope this info will help others who might encounter this issue in the
future, though from reading posts by others it sounds like it's not an issue
with VS 2008.
