I am just getting used C++ syntax and have constructed a very simple bit of code for testing:

I have the following files:

shoe.h (contains declaration for "TieLaces")
test.cpp (contains "main")
shoe.cpp (contains a function "TieLaces" which I make use of in "test.cpp")

Test.cpp and shoe.cpp are part of the same assembly (i.e., shoe.cpp is not part of an external library).

I am using MS VC++ 2008. It compiles fine, but the Linker section reports an "unresolved token" with regard to function "TieLaces".

I know that external libraries must be referenced in the Linker config section for external libs, but there is no way to reference an internal function (that I know of). So, why is this error occurring?

#include "stdafx.h"
#include "Shoe.h"

#define TRUE 1;
#define FALSE 0;

Shoe::Shoe() {}
Shoe::~Shoe() {}

bool TieLaces(void)
	bool Done = TRUE;
	return Done;

#include "stdafx.h"
#include "Shoe.h"

using namespace System;

int main(array<System::String ^> ^args)
    Console::WriteLine(L"Hello World");
    Shoe newShoes;
    return 0;

class Shoe
	bool TieLaces(void);

You have defined TieLaces as a member of the Shoe class in Shoe.h.
But in Shoe.cpp you have defined TieLaces as a global function.
Change it to -
bool Shoe::TieLaces(void)
	bool Done = TRUE;
	return Done;
