I am experiencing the same issue. I compiled the HDF5 source using CMAKE script provided from the website.
I included the compiled binaries in VS2017 as instructed in the “USING_HDF5_VS.txt” file. I was able to compile an test application to create a hdf5 file, however when I try to add a dataset, i get the same error of unresolved external symbol H5T_IEEE_F32BE_g.
I see where the variable is defined in the H5Tpublic.h file. What could be causing this problem?
