I´m not sure, but do you have the right project-type? If you use main as starting function then you need a console-application as project type, if you are using some type of WinMain then you´ll need win32 application...

Try i don´t know where did you get the code, but in the file Lesson2.cpp, try creating a "int main()" function and call the WinMain function (if any)

Maybe like this


  
int main()
{
return WinMain(bla bla bla bla...);
}


If God with me, Who against me?

It seems that there is a linking problem with the library you are trying to use. make sure you have inlcuded the proper directories of the libs in the tools->options->directories as well as under project->settings->link

As Gorath said, you''ve created a Console application rather than a Win32 application.

The 5th paragraph in Tutorial 1 specifically says to create "a new Win32 Application (NOT a console application)".
