SDK library and directory linking

Hi there,

I am relatively new to Visual studios and C++ as i have just switch over from python to use the SDK.
I would just like some help with the necessary setup procedures to get the necessary library’s functioning.
Will i need to change system environmental variables? and where would i add the links to the library’s and directories in Visual Studios 2015.

Any help would save me a huge amount of time,
Thank you!
