SecureBlackbox 16: (VCL) I am getting ‘Error: Unresolved external Cert...’ when linking the project with C++Builder

Note: This article applies only to SecureBlackbox Legacy. For future development please consider using the latest version.

The error means that Crypt32.lib is not linked to your project. To add Crypt32.lib, do the following:

  1. Close the C++Builder IDE (or Borland Developer Studio IDE)
  2. Open the BPR file of your project in a text editor (notepad is OK)
  3. Find the following line:
    ALLLIB value="..."
  4. This line includes the list of the libraries to be linked. Add "crypt32.lib" (without quotes) to the end of this list.
  5. Save the project and reopen the IDE.
