    What compiler? I remember getting that error once in the older version of Dev-C++ when I forgot to tell it to compile for Win32.

    Yeah, but what version? Most likely the newest one?

    Open Dev, then go to Tools>>Check for Updates/Packages. Then when it brings up the big list choose Win32 API.

    Do you have a main() function? A couple of times while writing header files, I've compiled just the header and it gave me a very similar error.
    There is a difference between tedious and difficult.
