    Unhappy Linking Error !!

    Dear Members,
    I am using Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 on Win 98 Platform.

    While Building my application using above compiler,
    i am getting the following Linking Errors :

    nafxcwd.lib (thrdcore.obj) : error LNK2001 : unresolved external symbol __endthreadex
    nafxcwd.lib (thrdcore.obj) : error LNK2001 : unresolved external symbol __beginthreadex
    Debug/program1.exe : fatal error LNK1120 : 2 unresolved externals

    There were no compile time errors.
    Can u tell me what these mean, and how to resolve them???
    I am attaching source files in a zip file.
    I am stuck in my project due to this.

    Looking forward for your help,
    Thanking you,

    Linking code requiring the multithreaded libraries (any MFC code or code compiled with /MT) causes LNK2001 on _beginthread, _beginthreadex, _endthread, and _endthreadex. See the following Knowledge Base article for more information:
    Got that info from here:

    Change your project settings to link with the multithreaded libraries, by default it links with the single threaded libraries.

    Project->Settings->C/C++->Category Code Generation-> Runtime library to Multithreaded or Debug multithreaded as appropriate.
