Go to your project settings, choose the C++ tab, select 'Code generation' and change the settings to "Use Runtime Library" to "Multithreaded DLL" (either Debug or Release), so the correct .lib will be used when linking.

Project - Settings - C++. Select Win32 Release configuration. Select Code Generation in the Category combo box. Select Multithreaded in the run-time library combo box.

I think you can also get this error if you are building an MFC project from scratch, i.e. from a blank workspace then adding the project files.  In this case you need to link with MFC either statically or dynamically.

But jkr/AlexFM are probably right...:)

jkr/AlexFM are right.

If you use the C Run-time library (i.e. you're a normal C/C++ developer) you need to use _beginthreadex to create threads because it puts a wrapper around the Win32 function CreateThread to allow C Run-time library static structures to be aware of the thread. The multi-threaded library has some extra stuff in it to deal with different threads accessing static data and only the multi-threaded library has _beginthreadex.

You *can* use CreateThread and use single threaded Run-time library, which doesn't have the additional overhead, but you'd need to steer away from C run-time library calls which use static data and use weird and wonderful stuff like CreateFile for I/O in preference to your old friends in <stdio.h>.
