    unresolved external symbol winmain 16

    How am I getting this linker error? These are the libraries I'm linking to:

    Code:
    #include <windows.h>
    #include <gl\gl.h>			
    #include <gl\glu.h>			
    #include <gl\glaux.h>		
    #include <fstream.h>
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <time.h>
    #include <math.h>
    For some reason I only get the error every once in a while

    EDIT: it probably has to do with the fact that I'm not using the current standard, but that should be perfectly all right (I actually need it in this case). I didnt' include using namespace std; in any of my other files, and I'm not trying to include any headers that are standard (at least I can't find any). HmmMmmMmmMm I'm going to have a broken keyboard tonight

    are you building console or win32api. if console, you're program is looking of api main.

    building win32api, it has winmain

    EDIT: deleting all my object files in the output folder (debug right now) and then rebuilding always solves the problem, but then i always get the error again sometime later
