DX11 Fatal error LNK1561: entry point must be defined

Recommended Posts

BluePhase    147

For some reason I have been having a hard time figuring this out. I used the source code from the Microsoft DirectX 11 Tutorial series to generate a DirectX window but I am receiving a huge list of errors while compiling it.

 

The tutorial required me to include these libraries:

 

d3d11.lib
d3dcompiler.lib
dxguid.lib
winmm.lib
comctl32.lib
 

but the first error I got was huge but cant seem to recreate it anymore after I removed the above include libraries.

I then reincluded them and then got the following error:

 

"fatal error LNK1561: entry point must be defined"

 

I tried everything to fix the error but nothing is working so any help at all would be appreciated.

 

I modified the source code a little bit into this:

 

Game.cpp followed by Game.h:

#include "Game.h"

int WINAPI Game::wWinMain( HINSTANCE hInstance, HINSTANCE hPrevInstance, LPWSTR lpCmdLine, int nCmdShow )
{
    UNREFERENCED_PARAMETER( hPrevInstance );
    UNREFERENCED_PARAMETER( lpCmdLine );

    if( FAILED( InitGameWindow( hInstance, nCmdShow ) ) )
        return 0;

    if( FAILED( InitDirect3D() ) )
    {
        CleanupDevice();
        return 0;
    }

    // Main message loop
    MSG msg = {0};
    while( WM_QUIT != msg.message )
    {
        if( PeekMessage( &msg, NULL, 0, 0, PM_REMOVE ) )
        {
            TranslateMessage( &msg );
            DispatchMessage( &msg );
        }
        else
        {

        }
    }

Where is your global WinMain function?

Isn't that in my header file? I declared wWinMain in my Game.h and used Game::wWinMain in my Game.cpp file.

Are you coming from Java? In C++ main function is global, not in a class.

Yea I am a general Java programmer trying to get into C++ game development. How could I modify my code into just keeping the main function as global? Would I need to just not derive from the class and just directly do int WINAPI wWinMain()?

// global function in .cpp, no need to put declare it in .h
int WINAPI wWinMain( HINSTANCE hInstance, HINSTANCE hPrevInstance, LPWSTR lpCmdLine, int nCmdShow ) {
    // create Game object here and call wWinMain method
}

int WINAPI wWinMain( HINSTANCE hInstance, HINSTANCE hPrevInstance, LPWSTR lpCmdLine, int nCmdShow ) {
    // create Game object here and call wWinMain method
}

 

It seemed to work but now I am getting new errors:

 

1>Game.obj : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol "public: __thiscall Game::Game(void)" (??0Game@@QAE@XZ) referenced in function _wWinMain@16
1>Game.obj : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol "public: __thiscall Game::Game(struct HINSTANCE__ *)" (??0Game@@QAE@PAUHINSTANCE__@@@Z) referenced in function "void __cdecl `dynamic initializer for 'ApplicationHandle''(void)" (??__EApplicationHandle@@YAXXZ)
1>Game.obj : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol "public: virtual __thiscall Game::~Game(void)" (??1Game@@UAE@XZ) referenced in function "void __cdecl `dynamic atexit destructor for 'ApplicationHandle''(void)" (??__FApplicationHandle@@YAXXZ)

 

I'm not sure why  this is happening either.

      Hi! I am trying to implement simple SSAO postprocess. The main source of my knowledge on this topic is that awesome tutorial.
      But unfortunately something doesn't work... And after a few long hours I need some help. Here is my hlsl shader:
      float3 randVec = _noise * 2.0f - 1.0f; // noise: vec: {[0;1], [0;1], 0} float3 tangent = normalize(randVec - normalVS * dot(randVec, normalVS)); float3 bitangent = cross(tangent, normalVS); float3x3 TBN = float3x3(tangent, bitangent, normalVS); float occlusion = 0.0; for (int i = 0; i < kernelSize; ++i) { float3 samplePos = samples[i].xyz; // samples: {[-1;1], [-1;1], [0;1]} samplePos = mul(samplePos, TBN); samplePos = positionVS.xyz + samplePos * ssaoRadius; float4 offset = float4(samplePos, 1.0f); offset = mul(offset, projectionMatrix); offset.xy /= offset.w; offset.y = -offset.y; offset.xy = offset.xy * 0.5f + 0.5f; float sampleDepth = tex_4.Sample(textureSampler, offset.xy).a; sampleDepth = vsPosFromDepth(sampleDepth, offset.xy).z; const float threshold = 0.025f; float rangeCheck = abs(positionVS.z - sampleDepth) < ssaoRadius ? 1.0 : 0.0; occlusion += (sampleDepth <= samplePos.z + threshold ? 1.0 : 0.0) * rangeCheck; } occlusion = saturate(1 - (occlusion / kernelSize)); And current result: http://imgur.com/UX2X1fc
      I will really appreciate for any advice!

      I made my obj parser
      and It also calculate tagent space for normalmap.
      it seems calculation is wrong..
      any good suggestion for this?
      I can't upload my pics so I link my question.

      Hi guys, 

      I dont know if this is the right section, but I did not know where to post this. 
      I am implementing a day night cycle on my game engine and I was wondering if there was a nice way to interpolate properly between warm colors, such as orange (sunset) and dark blue (night) color. I am using HSL format.
      Thank  you.

      I am aiming to learn Windows Forms with the purpose of creating some game-related tools, but since I know absolutely nothing about Windows Forms yet, I wonder:
      Is it possible to render a Direct3D 11 viewport inside a Windows Form Application? I see a lot of game editors that have a region of the window reserved for displaying and manipulating a 3D or 2D scene. That's what I am aiming for.
      Otherwise, would you suggest another library to create a GUI for game-related tools?
       
      EDIT:
      I've found a tutorial here in gamedev that shows a solution:
      Though it's for D3D9, I'm not sure if it would work for D3D11?
