    Unhappy I am unable to compile my very first Win32 code. Please help me out.

    I am using Visual C++ 2010 to compile the code given in this link:

    Code:

    From the menu: Project -> Properties
    Select: Configurations: -> All Configurations
    Select: Configuration Properties -> General
    Select: Character Set -> Use Multi-Byte Character Set

    It also might be nice if the tutorials used the character set independent macros, then it would compile with either setting.

    Then again, if everything always worked, you would never learn anything.

    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    I highly discourage the use of TCHAR's, but every Win32 API user has to learn about them eventually.
