    can not find MSVCR80D.dll?

    Hello everyone,


    If I change the entry point to main in linker --> advanced (default is empty). Then there will be an error box,

    can not find MSVCR80D.dll. What is wrong with my code? (if I change the entry point of application from main to empty, there is no such error)

    Code:
    static int i = 100;
    
    int main(int argc, char** argv)
    {
    	int j;
    
    	return 0;
    }
    I am using Visual Studio 2005 console application project.


    thanks in advance,
    George

    What's wrong with your code? What's wrong is, you've changed the entry point. It seems to take three or more threads to get this through to you. You CAN'T just change the entry point to main(), you're not optimizing anything by doing so, just give up already.

    Look, if you REALLY want to decrease the time spent before main(), you can look into using a different C library. They do exist. newlib is one example.

    You CANNOT just skip all the code that runs prior to main(). Why not? I'd say this DISASTROUS FAILURE is a great example of one reason why not.

    Read this - then you'll know what you'll be omitting by changing the entry point.
