I followed your instructions to the letter, and nowhere is a libcurl.dll
or libcurl.lib produced. No errors either.

Can you explain a bit more, how creating MyApp is supposed to trigger
the compilation of these files? Seems to me that just compiling curl
with the right configuration should do it, without creating a client
application... but then again I haven't been able to get a DLL through
any means yet, so I am not an expert.

Do you mean using the VS command shell with the makefile? Can you give
an example?
