    Have you included the header for that nonstandard function?

    I found the problem, I didn't include <conio.h>.

    But now I get these errors, and I can't find the solution to fix them:

    -fatal error LNK1120: 1 unresolved externals

    -error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol _WinMain@16 referenced in function ___tmainCRTStartup MSVCRTD.lib


    also I'm using Visual Studio 2005 to create my program:
    -this is what I did, I created a New Project, Other Languages, Visual C++, Win32, Win32 Project.
    -then I chose Windows Application, and Empty Project
    -then clicked Finish
    -then I copied my code down

    Your program begins with main(), a console program.
    Your compiler thinks you're building a GUI program, beginning at WinMain()

    Change the project type back to console.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
