Trying to compile a win32 app from the command line...

Ok, I'm missing something really basic. Take this simple example program: //test32.c #include <windows.h> int WINAPI WinMain (HINSTANCE hInstance, HINSTANCE hPrevInstance, PSTR szCmdLine, int iCmdShow) { MessageBox (NULL, TEXT ("Test"), TEXT ("Test"), 0) ; return 0 ; } It obviously compiles and runs just fine in VS2005 and 2008. But what do I have to do to get this to compile using the SDK windows C compiler (from the SDK command prompt)? cl win32.c doesn't cut it. I assume that just like in VS I have to communicate that this is a non-console win32 app, yes? But how to do so without VS... I'm having a devil of a time finding documentation on command line compiling details. Either way, anyone have an idea of what obvious thing I am overlooking? Thanks!
