Hey guys. Does anyone know why I get the error: --------------------Configuration: Window-Basic - Win32 Debug-------------------- Compiling... Window-Basic.cpp Linking... LIBCD.lib(crt0.obj) : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol _main Debug/Window-Basic.exe : fatal error LNK1120: 1 unresolved externals Error executing link.exe. Window-Basic.exe - 2 error(s), 0 warning(s) ----------------------------------------------------------------- This comes up, when I compile a basic window. (The code is from ''Windows Game Programming For Dummies'') Are one of my libraries missing? Oh, and by the way. I''m using MSVC++6. (Yes, the code has been modified to: winclass.hbrBackground = (HBRUSH)GetStockObject(BLACK_BRUSH)

You have probably created a Win32 Console App project, instead of an Win32 Windowed App project.

The default entry point in a console app is ''main'', while it is ''WinMain'' in a windowed app.

Just create a new project, and be sure to select Windowed App as the project type, then add all your c/cpp files to it and compile again.

Anyway, the code works GREAT!
