Does anyone know how to get rid of this error and where it comes from?
LIBCD.lib(wincrt0.obj) : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol _WinMain@16
Debug/Programming_Project_2.exe : fatal error LNK1120: 1 unresolved externals
What I did was transfer my code from another computer to my home computer, and I keep getting this error. I never received this message on the other PC. I checked my code and everything is fine.
Any ideas would be great. Thanks.

It looks like you have your compiler options set to build a Windows program. You should change your options to build a Console program.
What type of program did you copy?? Do you know the difference between a Windows program and a Win32 Console Application? They are completely different, and it looks like you might have a Windows program pasted into a Win32 Console Application or vice versa. If the program you copied has something like this somewhere:
Then, it needs to be pasted into a win32 Console Application.
Ah, stupid mistake. Thanks.
