Eclipse/MinGW won't Link Libraries

I am running Eclipse Oxygen trying to link GLFW to my project. I have 3 library files glfw3.dll, libglfw3.a, and libglfw3dll.a. I have tried with and without the lib prefix, the library path is included, and I have tried with and without the file extension.

Edit: The errors are c:/mingw/bin/../lib/gcc/mingw32/6.3.0/../../../../mingw32/bin/ld.exe: cannot find -lC:/Users/leobr/Desktop/glfw-3.2.1.bin.WIN64/lib-mingw-w64/glfw3.dll

    My main problem was that I was using Win32MinGW and win64GLFW. I also had to link dll library instead of the normal one.
