    Hi @Stan Huang ,

    You can refer to @Viorel and @David Lowndes ‘s suggestions and use both Nuget packages and Add references in a VC#(.NET) project.

    For using Nuget packages, see Quickstart: Install and use a package in Visual Studio (Windows only), and for add references(dependencies), see How to: Add or remove references by using the Reference Manager.

    If you want to know more about the differences between NuGet Packages and References, please check this explanation: Difference between Reference, Template, and a NuGet package?

    Best Regards,

    I know it's inappropriate to post this issue here:

    , but since it's hanging here longer than one month but no one can close it. Could you also help with it?

    Now, I consider building both (C# application & C++ DLL) in 64-bit. I did it successfully for C# application, but failed in building a 64-bit C++ DLL. I changed it 'Target Machine' option to x64 on Property Page. I got "fatal error LNK1112: module machine type 'x86' conflicts with target machine type 'x64'" in re-building it. How come? Could you tell me how to configure to build a 64-bit C++ DLL. I found its platform option contains only Win32 & Active(Win32) in Property page. Why is there no x64 option?
