    I've been typing a sample program in and it's been working.  Recently typed it in again, and it's not working now.  I've retyped it over and over and keep getting this error:
            [Linker Error] Unresolved external 'WinMain' referenced from C:\PROGRAM FILES\BORLAND\CBUILDER6\LIB\C0W32.OBJ

     Why has this problem started to show up?  What needs to be done to troubleshoot this problem?

COW32 is a runtime library...
If not Axter's recomendation works try reinstall BCB...

Hi Axter and George ---

      I'd deleted that project and started all over again, as it was a small piece of demontration code.
      Created a new Application and saved as a new Project.  Now, these errors show when compiled:
          [C++ Warning] MyFirstProgram.cpp(4): W8058 Cannot create pre-compiled header: write failed
          [C++ Warning] MyFirstForm.cpp(4): W8058 Cannot create pre-compiled header: write failed

     Been having lots of issues with privilege levels with my login account on the company computer.  Do you think these "write failed" errors result from not having enough privilege create and write these headers to disk?  Do any other reasons come to mind?

Thanks

Those are warnings and are not important...
Did the project run??

    IT chief came by and changed my login account to Administrator, and that fixed the problem.  Don't know why Borland C++ Builder 6 Professional won't work on the company LAN when operated with accounts less than Adminstrator.  I post that problem on another message . . .
