Hello python community.
I use python in a software I develop.
I succeed the standard build into lib/dll on windows.
However, I have difficulties when I want to change the name of the lib. And used them with the new name in my project.
I follow the Readme that tell to change the name, we have to change in PCbuild the python.props. So I did that and I had the right name I wanted after building python. But when I compile my project, when I reached the link step,my project search for the old library name. And I have nothing in my code that try to search for this library. I add the include python.lib in my project settings, but it said that it cannot open file python38.lib. I think some compile C code may reference to his name. And if it's the case. I want to know if it's possible to build python with a different name than  python38 and python38_d.lib/dll on Windows.
