Hi i was wondering if anyone might know the cause of this error and how to fix it. I''m running VC++ 6.0 and have the November 2001 Edition of the Microsoft® Platform Software Development Kit (SDK). Any help would be greatly appreciated geordie Linking...

Your project in MSVC is set up for a "Win32 Application".

All Win32 applications have a function called WinMain() which is the central entry/start point when the program is run.

It seems that none of the source code files in your project have a WinMain function!

If the application is meant to be a console application (i.e. your entry/start function is called "main"), then you should recreate the project and instead of selecting "Win32 Application", select "Win32 Console Application".
