cuda vs2005 dll functions cannot open file 'cudart.lib'

Hello

I am having this problem, i am making a function cuda dll, i can make dll’s with no problem (non-cuda), i also can make cuda programs, (non-dll) version, with no problem, all under 2005vs, but when i combine the two, i get errors.

so basically this is the code, it is code from cuda_example3. posted on the web, so i was converting it to a dll function library,

here is the dll part:

// CudaFuncsDll.h

#ifndef CUDAFUNCSDll_H
#define CUDAFUNCSDll_H
#include

#if defined DLL_EXPORT
#define DECLDIR __declspec(dllexport)
#else
#define DECLDIR __declspec(dllexport)
#endif

extern “C”
{
DECLDIR global void square_array( float *a, int N );
}
#endif

here is the function body

//CudaFuncsDll.cpp

#include “CudaFuncsDll.h”

#include

using namespace std;

namespace CudaFuncs
{

global void square_array( float *a, int N )
{
int idx = blockIdx.x * blockDim.x + threadIdx.x;
if ( idx < N )
a[idx] = a[idx] * a[idx];
}
}

compiler output is:

so far so good, compiles fine, no errors,

but when i try to build the main i get an error

/ MyExecRefsDll.cpp : Defines the entry point for the console application.
//

#include “stdafx.h”
#include
#include <stdio.h>
#include <cuda.h>

using namespace std;

// main routine that executes on the host
int _tmain(int argc, _TCHAR* argv)
{
float *a_h, *a_d; // Pointer to host & device arrays
const int N = 10; // Number of elements in arrays
size_t size = N * sizeof( float );

 a_h = (float *)malloc( size );     // Allocate array on host  
 cudaMalloc( (void **)&a_d, size ); // Allocate array on device  

 // Initialize host array and copy it to CUDA device  

 for ( int i = 0; i < N; i++ )  
     a_h[i] = (float)i;  

 cudaMemcpy( a_d, a_h, size, cudaMemcpyHostToDevice );

// xor_arrays <<< n_blocks, block_size >>> ( a_d, N );  

 // Retrieve result from device and store it in host array  

 cudaMemcpy( a_h, a_d, sizeof( float ) * N, cudaMemcpyDeviceToHost );  

 // Print results  
 for ( int i = 0; i < N; i++ )  
    printf( "%d %f\n", i, a_h[i] );

// Cleanup

free( a_h );
cudaFree( a_d );
return 0;
}

the compiler/linker output is:

‘cudart.lib’, this is referenced in additional dependences as the path, and in the linker as input.

so maybe someone has an idea.
