Referencing DeckLinkAPI

Hello all!

I know that this is probably a question that is answered elsewhere and probably something that I missed during installation, however I am unable to build a C# project that is located at
Code: Select all
Blackmagic DeckLink SDK 12.0\Win\Samples\CapturePreviewCSharp
I am getting the errors attached. I am assuming that this is due to the DeckLinkAPI not being added as a reference properly to my project, and would like instruction on how to do this. I would appreciate any advice or assistance.

Hi Jacob,

Please check the following:
  1. That you have installed Desktop Video 12.0 software. By installing the software, the DeckLinkAPI COM types and interfaces will have been registered.
  2. In Visual Studio, right click the project and select Add --> Reference... In Reference Manager dialog, select COM then add "DeckLink API Library".
