Error when trying out a tutorial

I'm trying to learn the basics of DirectX and found a nice site for that ([url="http://www.directxtutorial.com/Tutorial11/B-A/BA2.aspx"]http://www.directxtutorial.com/Tutorial11/B-A/BA2.aspx[/url]).
The problem is, that the VS2010 compiler only returns strange errors (I have followed the steps to use DirectX with VS2010).

Here are some of these:

Error 1 error LNK2028: unresolved token (0A000074) "extern "C" void __stdcall PostQuitMessage(int)" (?PostQuitMessage@@$$J14YGXH@Z) referenced in function "long __stdcall WindowProc(struct HWND__ *,unsigned int,unsigned int,long)" (?WindowProc@@$$FYGJPAUHWND__@@IIJ@Z) C:\Users\Simon\Programme\DirectX\DirectXSample1\DirectXSample1\DirectXSample1.obj DirectXSample1

Error 2 error LNK2028: unresolved token (0A00007D) "extern "C" struct HICON__ * __stdcall LoadCursorW(struct HINSTANCE__ *,wchar_t const *)" (?LoadCursorW@@$$J18YGPAUHICON__@@PAUHINSTANCE__@@PB_W@Z) referenced in function "extern "C" int __stdcall WinMain(struct HINSTANCE__ *,struct HINSTANCE__ *,char *,int)" (?WinMain@@$$J216YGHPAUHINSTANCE__@@0PADH@Z) C:\Users\Simon\Programme\DirectX\DirectXSample1\DirectXSample1\DirectXSample1.obj DirectXSample1

Error 3 error LNK2028: unresolved token (0A00008D) "extern "C" int __stdcall TranslateMessage(struct tagMSG const *)" (?TranslateMessage@@$$J14YGHPBUtagMSG@@@Z) referenced in function "extern "C" int __stdcall WinMain(struct HINSTANCE__ *,struct HINSTANCE__ *,char *,int)" (?WinMain@@$$J216YGHPAUHINSTANCE__@@0PADH@Z) C:\Users\Simon\Programme\DirectX\DirectXSample1\DirectXSample1\DirectXSample1.obj DirectXSample1

I do not understand where the problem is. I tried to copy the code from the site and only change the property that allows software rendering.

Does anyone has a idea where this could be come from (the code is, besides this one changed flag, the same as on this site)?
