Appears to be a project settings conflict. Maybe you have created a blank project and pasted some code from a different project?

The include file afx.h contains a sequence

#ifndef _AFX_NOFORCE_LIBS

...  include some windows and mfc libs

#ifdef _DLL
      #if !defined(_AFX_NO_DEBUG_CRT) && defined(_DEBUG)
            #pragma comment(lib, "msvcrtd.lib")
      #else
            #pragma comment(lib, "msvcrt.lib")
      #endif
#else
#ifdef _MT
      #if !defined(_AFX_NO_DEBUG_CRT) && defined(_DEBUG)
            #pragma comment(lib, "libcmtd.lib")
      #else
            #pragma comment(lib, "libcmt.lib")
      #endif
#else
      #if !defined(_AFX_NO_DEBUG_CRT) && defined(_DEBUG)
            #pragma comment(lib, "libcd.lib")
      #else
            #pragma comment(lib, "libc.lib")
      #endif
#endif
#endif


// force inclusion of NOLIB.OBJ for /disallowlib directives
#pragma comment(linker, "/include:__afxForceEXCLUDE")

... some other stuff

#endif //!_AFX_NOFORCE_LIBS

You see that  msvcrtd.lib should be included as you have a DEBUG version but the error message above says there is a conflict with 'msvcrt.lib' the RELEASE version of the runtime library.

Maybe you removed _DEBUG macro from the preprocessor settings for Win32 Debug??

The unresolved external is most likely a following error because of the wrong runtime library.

You should also check your Precompiled Header settings. When using stdafx.h as precompiled header file, all your cpp files that are not excluded from precompiled headers must have #include "stdafx.h" as first include statement.
