    I am guessing you are trying to compile and link a file that doesn't have a main defined. Are you working with multiple files?
    Prove you can code in C++ or C# at TopCoder, referrer rrenaud

    sometimes people get this when they try to do windows programs without setting up a windows project. WinMain vs main is usually the issue. if you set up your project as a DOS/console app you need main(), if you set it up as a Windows App, you need WinMain. could be your problem. dunno

    The same error had me stumped yesterday and the problem then
    was that the function prototype didnt match the function header.

    I had.

    void BubbleSort(int array, int arraySize);

    then

    void Bubblesort(int array, int arraySize)

    Hope this helps.
