fatal error lnk1169 visual c++

I am now getting errors from Visual Studio while linking: fatal error LNK1169: one or more multiply defined symbols found. base.dll: fatal error LNK1169: one or more multiply defined symbols found With Visual Studio 2017 Version 15.4.1 and Windows SDK. fatal error LNK1169: one or more multiply defined symbols found? Jun 21, 2015 at 4:47am It is in visual studios 2013 again BTW.

c++ – fatal error LNK1169: one or more multiply defined symbols found in game programming

The two variables are defined in the header file. This means that every source file which includes the header will contain their definition (header inclusion is purely textual). The of course leads to multiple definition errors.

You have several options to fix this.

  1. Make the variables (). They will still exist in each source file, but their definitions will not be visible outside of the source file.

  2. Turn their definitions into declarations by using () and put the definition into one source file: .

  3. Probably the best option: make the variables (). This makes them implicitly, and also allows them to be used as compile-time constants, allowing the compiler to use their value directly instead of issuing code to read it from the variable etc.

You cant put variable definitions in header files, as these will then be a part of all source file you include the header into.

The is just to protect against multiple inclusions in the same source file, not against multiple inclusions in multiple source files.

You could declare the variables as in the header file, and then define them in a single source file. Or you could declare the variables as in the header file and then the compiler and linker will manage it.
