2.2.1 Generated files

The following files will be built:

The dynamically linkable frontend library
Import library to link your programs to ‘libpq.dll’
Static version of the frontend library

Normally you do not need to install any of the client files. You should place the ‘libpq.dll’ file in the same directory as your applications executable file. Do not install ‘libpq.dll’ into your ‘Windows’, ‘System’ or ‘System32’ directory unless absolutely necessary. If this file is installed using a setup program, then it should be installed with version checking using the VERSIONINFO resource included in the file, to ensure that a newer version of the library is not overwritten.

If you are planning to do development using libpq on this machine, you will have to add the ‘src\include’ and ‘src\interfaces\libpq’ subdirectories of the source tree to the include path in your compiler's settings.

To use the library, you must add the ‘libpqdll.lib’ file to your project. (In Visual C++, just right-click on the project and choose to add it.)
