Hi. I have downloaded QT and created my first project:

#pragma comment(lib, "QtCore4.lib")

#include <QtCore/qcoreapplication.h>

int main(int argc, char *argv[])
QCoreApplication a(argc, argv);

return a.exec();

The code compiles fine if subsystem is set to console. However only the console window is shown when I run it. So I chaned it to "Windowed", and I get a linker error:
LINK : C:\Users\Minas\Documents\Visual Studio 2010\Projects\Qt_HelloWorld\Debug\Qt_HelloWorld.exe not found or not built by the last incremental link; performing full link
1>MSVCRTD.lib(crtexew.obj) : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol _WinMain@16 referenced in function ___tmainCRTStartup

(I have set up the project correctly). What am I missing?

Set Linker->Advanced->Entry point project setting to "mainCRTStartup" (without quotes).

Here's more info about this setting: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/f9t8842e.aspx
