You need to tell your development environment that you want a Win32 application, not a console application.  Details will vary depending on what environment you have.

Also, that system call is MessageBox, not messagebox. Using "messagebox" will probably give you more linker errors.

One more thing:
What is TEXT("")? Why would you need such a construct to make/use strings while you can make perfectly good C-strings by just using the "quotes"?

TEXT("") conditionally marks the literal to use unicode conversion
best to get in the habit of using TEXT instead of C strings early!

As for the errors...   What compiler/IDE?
