Hello! And thanks for taking time! So, I thought just for a second to try out SDL. Since I can't find a good tutorial on ID3DXSprite. So after I wrote the code contained in this tutorial. I found myself surrounded by error messages. More specifically:
1>------ Build started: Project: SDL test app, Configuration: Debug Win32 ------
1>msvcrt.lib(ti_inst.obj) : error LNK2005: "private: __thiscall type_info::type_info(class type_info const &)" (??0type_info@@AAE@ABV0@@Z) already defined in LIBCMT.lib(typinfo.obj)
1>msvcrt.lib(ti_inst.obj) : error LNK2005: "private: class type_info & __thiscall type_info::operator=(class type_info const &)" (??4type_info@@AAEAAV0@ABV0@@Z) already defined in LIBCMT.lib(typinfo.obj)
1>msvcrt.lib(MSVCR80.dll) : error LNK2005: _exit already defined in LIBCMT.lib(crt0dat.obj)
1>msvcrt.lib(MSVCR80.dll) : error LNK2005: __isctype already defined in LIBCMT.lib(isctype.obj)
1>LINK : warning LNK4031: no subsystem specified; CONSOLE assumed

========== Build: 0 succeeded, 1 failed, 0 up-to-date, 0 skipped ==========

I have linked both SDL.lib and SDLmain.lib via "Project"->"Properties"->"Linker"->"Input". Here is my code:
#include <SDL/SDL.h>
#include <string>

const int SCREEN_HEIGHT = 480; //window height
const int SCREEN_WIDTH = 640; //Window width
const int SCREEN_BPP = 32; //Bits per pixel


SDL_Surface* background = NULL;
SDL_Surface* message = NULL;
SDL_Surface* screen = NULL;

SDL_Surface* LoadImage(std::string filename)
	SDL_Surface* loadedimage = NULL; //Create a new surface

	SDL_Surface* optimizedimage = NULL; //Create yet another surface

	loadedimage = SDL_LoadBMP(filename.c_str());

	//If loading of image was succeded
	if(loadedimage !=NULL)

		//Optimize image for 32 bit instead of 24 bit
		optimizedimage = SDL_DisplayFormat(loadedimage);

		//Free the old image

		return optimizedimage;

void Applyimage(int x, int y, SDL_Surface* source, SDL_Surface* dest)
	SDL_Rect rect;

	rect.x = x;
	rect.y = y;

	//Blit the surface to the surface designated by "dest"
	SDL_BlitSurface(source, NULL, dest, &rect);


int main(int argc, char* argv[])
	//Initialize SDL subsystems
		return 1;
	//return a pointer to a screen surface and assign it to "screen"

	//If there was an error getting the screen up
	if(screen == NULL)
		return 1; //End program

	//Set window caption
	SDL_WM_SetCaption("Hello world!", NULL);

	//Load images
	message = LoadImage("hello.bmp");
	background = LoadImage("bg.bmp");

	//Apply the background to screen
	Applyimage(0, 0, background, screen);
	Applyimage(140, 180, message, screen);

	//Update the screen
	if(SDL_Flip(screen) == -1)
		return 1;

	//Wait two seconds

	//Free surfaces


Thanks for any help in advance! [smile] [Edited by - Samsonite on March 6, 2006 1:01:50 PM]

You may be trying to build it as a console app. Trying building it as a Win32 GUI application. Make sure your runtime libraries are Multi-threaded DLL.
