I'm trying to compile a fortran program in Microsoft Developer Studio.  The code compiles, but I get the following error messages when I try to "build" the project:

--------------------Configuration: TCEbiofilm - Win32 Debug--------------------
Linking...
libcd.lib(wincrt0.obj) : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol _WinMain@16
Debug/TCEbiofilm.exe : fatal error LNK1120: 1 unresolved externals
Error executing link.exe.

TCEbiofilm.exe - 2 error(s), 0 warning(s)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Any help in solving this problem will be much appreciated

This occurs generally when you try to create a Win32 console application but, you define main() function instead of WinMain().
Try to generate an empty console project:

File -> New -> Project -> Win32 Console Application, and the AppWizard will generate the proper main function. Cut and paste all your code and that's all!
