Unicode and MFC

I am looking at a Novell sample program written in C but being compiled on the MSVC++ ver 6 compiler. I am getting an error message such as :-

Libcd.lib(wwincrt0.obj) : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol _wWinMain@16

which I believe to be due to mixing Unicode and MFC. However  I am using the win32 Application wizard to generate my project not the MFC App wizard.

I have also tryed adding "wWinMainCRTStartup" to the Project|Settings|Link|Output|Entry-Point Symbol edit box, but this made no difference.

Does anyone have any ideas as to a solution?
