static link using nuget

Dec 23, 2014 at 1:57 PM
Hi,

i've added the sdk via nuget to my project and I would like to link it statically. There are a lot of properties etc in the cpprestsdk.targets file but I can't configure it to use the lib instead of the dll.

Can anybody help me please?

regards

Hi Michael,

Our NuGet package doesn't contain binaries for static linking. We don't officially support static linking but others have been successful with some modifications building from source themselves. Take a look at the feature request for static linking here, it contains some comments and where to get started.
