SDL trouble =(

Recommended Posts

I just downloaded the SDL pack for dev-c++ 4.9.7.0 and i try runninga simple program that only includes the sdl library i get a [Linker error] undefined reference to `WinMain@16'' so i did some searching some people said change main() to SDL_main() and put all these extensions in the linker options and none of them worked.. thanks

I''ve never used Dev-C++, but it sounds like you need to build a windows app instead of a console app -

add -mwindows to your link line

Leave main as main and link with SDLmain. Also, here are a few links that might be useful to you:

You don''t need to make a windows app, it will work with either window or console (although window is recommended, since you don''t want a window and a console). It sounds like you just didn''t link the SDLmain library.
