Hi All!
I am writing a program which is going to compile in both
ANSI and UNICODE. It works out Ok in ANSI but when I
compile under _UNICODE I receive this linker error (below).
Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong?

I skeleton code for my project was provided by the AppWizard.
Where do I look to find my WinMain definition?

I guess you must have specified the entry point as wWinMainCRTStartup, right? If you use AppWizard to creat the framework, delete it and try again. Please contact me if further questions.

No, I have not specified any entry-point at all.
I am building a MFC AppWizard Exe.

You must include "UNICODE" support during project setup.

No, the code is written so that it compiles under both
_UNICODE and ANSI. There is something missing though (library)
when I compile it under _UNICODE.

1. _WinMain@16 looks like a C++ mangled name.  Are you using C++?
2. What does your WinMain declaration look like?
