The name of a library to search when resolving external references.
The /DEFAULTLIB option adds one library to the list of libraries that LINK searches when resolving references. A library specified with /DEFAULTLIB is searched after libraries specified on the command line and before default libraries named in .obj files.
The Ignore All Default Libraries (/NODEFAULTLIB) option overrides /DEFAULTLIB:library. The Ignore Libraries (/NODEFAULTLIB:library) option overrides /DEFAULTLIB:library when the same library name is specified in both.
- This linker option is not available from the Visual Studio development environment. To add a library to the link phase, use the Additional Dependencies property from the Input property page.
