I am an experienced unix programer, and I want to break into the windows programming world. Ive downloaded the free Borland C++Builder Compiler. (not the full builder tool, just the command line compiler) I went to lesson01, and tried to compile it. I got the message: error: unresolved external ''_main'' in [snip]COX32.OBJ Looking at the code, there was no main() section. So I added a section that looks like this: int main() { WinMain; } Now it compiles fine, but it doesnt display the window. Ive actually done some more debuging, but I dont want to confuse the issue too much. My question is: do I need the full visualC++ or C+ builder, or can I do this with just the compiler? What is special about the "lesson01.bpf" file that knows what to do with a WINAPI function? thanks Karl

add "-tW" option to the command line:

bcc32 -tW filename.cpp
