In this document I will show you how to enable CANlib in Visual Studio 2017 when creating a C++ project. I will show how to create WIN32 and WIN64 applications. I will also show how to handle the platform-settings: x86 and x64. When this is done, you can use the same project (source code) for creating WIN32 and WIN64 applications without editing your code. The instructions in this document can also be used when enabling CANlib in an existing project.
