All distributions of Connector/C++ contain a README file, which contains platform-specific notes. At the end of the README file contained in the binary distribution you will find the settings used to build the binaries. If you experience build-related issues on a platform, it may help to check the settings used on the platform to build the binary.
A better solution is to build your MySQL Connector/C++ libraries from the source code, using the same tools that you use for building your application. This ensures compatibility.
One problem that can occur is when the tools you use to build your application are not compatible with the tools used to build the binary versions of MySQL Connector/C++. Ideally, you need to build your application with the same tools that were used to build the MySQL Connector/C++ binaries.
