For example, if you want to use poco lib in Visual Studio 2005 Project, you need to build with build_vs80.cmd.Once you have built successfully, you can see all poco static lib in {POCO Folder}lib. (eg: C:poco-1.6.1lib)

4. Create new project in visual studio and add header path to Project->Properties->C/C++-> Additional Include Directories(eg: If you want to use     POCO Foundation, add “C:poco-1.6.1Foundationinclude”)
ex. 스크린샷 2015-08-27 오전 11.40.15

5. Add POCO lib path to Project->Properties-> Linker-> General-> Additional Library Directories. (eg: C:poco-1.6.1lib)

6. Add POCO lib files names to Project->Properties->Linker->Input-> Additional Dependencies (eg: PocoNetd.lib )
