[netCDF #DPW-865293]: Support needed for configuring NetCDF with Visual Studio.


I see that you also posted this question on Stack Overflow, at 
The answer by Ame Anderson is correct; the C library does not use namespaces.  
Our C++ interface, which does support namespaces, is not currently supported 
officially on Windows.  I am actively working on this support currently; you 
may monitor the progress on our github site if you like.  This is available at 
http://github.com/Unidata/netcdf-cxx4.  For the time being, however, you cannot 
use the netcdf namespace.  

I hope this helps,

> C/C++ -> Additional Include Directories = C:\Program Files (x86)\netCDF
> Linker -> Input = netcdf.lib
> But the problem is I cannot access the netCDF namespace.

> But accessing header files doesn't make any trouble
> #include <netcdf.h> //no error
> Can you please walk me through on configuring Visual Studio with NetCDF.
