(I'm not sure why one would choose to use the Chilkat "C" API within a C++ program because it would be more natural to use the Chilkat C++ classes instead.)

To include the Chilkat "C" API headers within a C++ source file, make sure to wrap it in extern "C", such as the following:

extern "C" {

// Include Chilkat "C" headers here...

If your application source is compiled as a C++ source, then the names are mangled according to the C++ compiler's name decoration rules. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Name_mangling A "C" compiler does not mangle names. Therefore, if you compile "C" declarations as a C++ source, you'll get undefined references and/or unresolved externals.
