    Perhaps you are trying to compile a console app as a win32 app (or vice-versa). Check your porject settings. Console applications expect there to be a main function defined somewhere and will complain if none is found. Win32 applications expect there to be a winmain function somewhere and will complain if one is not found. Sounds like this may be the issue (perhaps not but it won't hurt to check out).
