I had to brush up on my C++ before I could start doing graphical programming. So I went into Visual C++ 6.0 and started practicing using classes and header files. Suddenly I got this error:
LNK2001 unresolved external symbol _winmain@16
I started to wonder what was causing this and went back to the simple HelloWorld program. Now this program was giving me an error too.
I found a small way around the problem, but it is very inefficient. (Basically I just make a cpp file to start and then it builds a project instead of the reverse order)
I have been through all of the help, etc. and I still dont know how to fix it. Any one have any suggestions?
Do you think a file could have somehow become corrupt and I should reinstall?
However, when I try to do it as a WinApp, it still gives the same error. Additionally, it has a warning: "WinMain must be _stdCall" While this isnt important for a program such as helloworld (I can do that in a windows console), this could be important later. I have changed the "main" to "winmain" (with different combinations of capital letters) and it still gives the unresolved external symbol.
