I assume you’re using the latest master branch? Have a look at this post: very recently the location of the lib files were changed. Chances are your project settings need to be updated, specifically the linker settings for your libraries and additional directories.
That’s exactly what I was after, thanks appreciate the help - I decided it was best to rebuild and start a new project in the end, and cloned the latest master branch. Cinder now won’t build at all the first error being:
Error C2027 use of undefined type 'std::basic_ofstream<char,std::char_traits<char>>' cinder c:\dev\cinder\src\cinder\utilities.cpp 104
