This just means that the function

bool InitializeDirect3d11App(HINSTANCE__ *)

that is used in your

_WinMain function is never defined anywhere

 

It is called, but the compiler cannot find the actual function definition.


Wisdom is knowing when to shut up, so try it.

It is not a compile error it is a linker error.
Add the .CPP file containing that function to your project or, if you believe it already is then perform a full rebuild.

If the .CPP file is added and a full rebuild still fails, check the declaration of that function in its header file and ensure it is an exact match for its definition in the .CPP file (also assuming it exists in the .CPP at all).

Problem was in the naming of the function. Resolved.
