Pay attention to content of TOOLKIT_IN_DLL defines in each main .cpp of examples. There is an initialization of modules needed in static:
#ifndef TOOLKIT_IN_DLL INIT_IFC_STATIC_MODULES_NO_GEOM; #endif
#ifndef TOOLKIT_IN_DLL ODRX_INIT_STATIC_MODULE_MAP(); #endif
So in md configuration each module should been previously initialized for our rt linker can work with them. Seems your problem related with this initialization.
