    error LNK1120: 1 unresolved externals

    I try to run the following code which actually from a book ( C How to program by P.J.Deitel & H.M. Deitel) regarding arrays chapter.

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    int main ( void )
    {
    	int n[ 10 ];
    	int i;
    
    	for ( i = 0; i < 10; i++) {
    		n[ i ] = 0;
    	}
    
    	printf("%s%13s\n", "Element", "Value");
    
    	for ( i = 0; i < 10; i++ ) {
    		printf("%7d13d\n", i, n[ i ] );
    	}
    	getchar();
    	return 0;
    }
    But when I try to run it, it will always produce 2 of the following errors.
    1. error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol_WinMain@16 referenced in function____tmainCRTStartup
    2. error LNK1120: 1 unresolved externals

    Any idea?

    You set your program up as a windows project. For project type you need to select console.
