# Directx Redux Screen Saver Framework

## Recommended Posts

Has anyone built the Redux Screen Saver Sample from the Microsoft Site? I have tried everything to fix my problem linker issues, but for some reason I just can''t seem to figure out what is causing the problem. The following is my error message:

--------------------Configuration: Redux Screen Saver - Win32 Debug--------------------
LIBCD.lib(wincrt0.obj) : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol _WinMain@16
Debug/Redux Screen Saver.exe : fatal error LNK1120: 1 unresolved externals

Redux Screen Saver.exe - 2 error(s), 0 warning(s)

And yes I am sure I am building a Win32 Application, I even tried to compile it as a Win32 Console Application. Please Help!

Console applications are for the command line. Win32 applications are for windows. You''ll need to look at an example workspace for ScreenSavers to get rid of these errors. basically your not building an .exe you building a .scr and some project setting need to change to pick up that you not building an app.

Sorry i can''t gie you more it''s been 3 yrs since i built a screen saver. check out \DX81SDK\samples\Multimedia\Direct3D\Screensavers\Moire that should have everything you need to setup your workspace properly.
