unresolved external symbol _mysql_get_client_info@0

I'm using visual studio 2010, trying the very simple first C tutorial:
#include "my_global.h"
#include "mysql.h"

int main(int argc, char **argv)
printf("MySQL client version: %s\n", mysql_get_client_info());
I'm including libmysql.lib in the linker input, and I can ensure that the linker is reading that file, because if I rename it it tells me it can't find it. However it does not link because of this error:
MySQLTest.obj : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol _mysql_get_client_info@0 referenced in function _main

I hope that someone can give me a clue of where to fix this problem. Thank you.
