    This is not a compiler error. It is a programmer error in setting up the project. The error message is from the linker, not the compiler.

    You have multiple source files in your project. One of those other files has also defined (i.e. implemented) a main() function. Remove other source files (or object files, if you manually added them) from your project.

    And, in forums like thine one, you need to learn patience because people respond when they get around to it. Bumping a thread after 12 minutes with a "plzzz help" is not patience.

    Seriously. 12 minutes was too long to wait for an answer? Wow. In any event it seems like there are more instances of main() defined; I would look there first.

    Peace and patience...
