    You forgot to write your global main function.

    By the way, in the future, instead of posting a screenshot of your code, post your code in [code][/code] bbcode tags.

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    You created a project of type "Windows Application" - it looks for WinMain function as a start point

    You need to create "Windows Console Application" project - it will have a main function as a start point
    To be or not to be == true
