    Unhappy Need some Help Please !!

    Hi Everybody, I am new to this programming side. I Like to learn about c++. I found an simple tutorial to make trough c++. I wrote the codes correctly. When i compile there is no errors. But when i execute .exe [CTRL+F5] there are 2 errors. does any body have any solution for these errors?

    I am using Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0
    OS - Windows XP Professional Service pack 3

    This is the code what i am working with
    Code:
    // my first program in c++
    
    #include <iostream>
    using namespace std;
    
    int main ()
    {
    	cout << "Hello World!/n";
    	cout << "I'm a C++ Programer";
    	return 0;
    
    }

    This is the message which appears when i compile it.

    --------------------Configuration: Learning - Win32 Debug--------------------
    Compiling...
    Skipping... (no relevant changes detected)
    1st.cpp

    1st.obj - 0 error(s), 0 warning(s)

    This the message which appears when i execute the .exe file.

    --------------------Configuration: Learning - Win32 Debug--------------------
    Linking...
    LIBCD.lib(wincrt0.obj) : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol _WinMain@16
    Debug/Learning.exe : fatal error LNK1120: 1 unresolved externals
    Error executing link.exe.

    Learning.exe - 2 error(s), 0 warning(s)
    does any body have any idea about this ?
    I am glad to see a solution for this.

    Does your exe build ok in the log though? Force a rebuild and check the messages at that stage, Have you compiled, built and run any other programs with this IDE, I imagine not given the code content, but any success using other environments? Check your project linking options also.

    So you checked all the project linking options etc? Are you on a 64 bit machine? What is the OS? There is a lot of help in those goole search links, What did you try from those and what was the result of those steps?

    I'm sorry i cant help any further as this is not an issue i have ever had, and if it were me i would have googled and tried that way, after doing my usual project build checks, I beleive this to be a system specific issue, ie your machine so i would do standard troubleshooting tests like write a new project and test that, test your installation package on a different machine, reinstall the IDE if it has never worked before, install a different IDE like codeblocks and test with that to see if anything at all can be made to build and run on your OS and hardware,

    You created a Win32 application, not a Win32 Console application.

    Under Project->Properties->Configuration Properties->Linker->System change SubSystem from Windows to Console.

    i am using Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0. There is no thing like that under project.
    There is a option called settings. but still there is no option called Configuration Properties > Linker..... etc..

    Well I certainly don't have a 10+ year old version of Visual Studio lying around to find the correct settings for you, so experiment. You don't want the Win32 Application, you want a Console application.

    Upgrade to Visual Studio 2008/2010. Then repeat the steps outlined.
