All right. So I downloaded SDL. I installed it to the directories. I got it working with VC++ 6.0 Introductory Edition. Then, I changed the compiler to VC++ Toolkit 2003 (I'm still using the same IDE, I just pointed it to the new compiler's directory) and I get these errors: SDLTest.obj : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol __RTC_Shutdown SDLTest.obj : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol __RTC_InitBase I must admit that I've never heard of these functions in my life! Can someone help me with this?

What's the code you're using? It could also be because your forgetting to include all of the SDL libraries.

#include "SDL.h"int main( int argc, char* argv[] ){  // Body of the program goes here.  return 0;}

Straight out of the SDL manual. Just for a test. I'm linking both sdl.lib and sdlmain.lib. And I've tried them in different orders, too.

Take a look at this page, which someone has the same problem you are having. The solution is in the post at the bottom, a few settings to change. See if those work for you. Good luck!
