Ahh, if you want to use the libraries from MSVC you need the dev (which you
linked in your original email) and shared (

The shared build provides the dlls that you need to load. The dev build
provides the include header files as well as stub .lib files that you can
use to implicitly load the dll files. If you're using visual studio, you
add the .lib files to the configuration and that will make all the
functions in the dlls available to you.
