Not open for further replies.


Broken In
hey guys i'm learning visual c++ and i'm getting errors on building the following's from a book and so i expected it to run but it's giving errors please tell me what they mean and how to get rid of them

int_stdcall WinMain ( HINSTANCE hInstance, HINSTANCE hPrevInstance, LPSTR lpCmdLine, int nShowCmd)

error C2146: syntax error : missing ';' before identifier 'WinMain'

error C2501: 'int_stdcall' : missing storage-class or type specifiers

fatal error C1004: unexpected end of file found

p.s. i did not install msdn library. does that affect?


Beware of the innocent
msdn library should not be a problem. This most probably is a problem with the necessary file not being pointed out to the linker or a required header file not being referenced.
My vc++ skills are a bit rusty.
