Exactly what it says : that main has to return an int (not void).

So :

        int main(int argc, char **argv)

instead of :

        void main(int argc, char **argv)

if you link winsock.dll to my code, will compile without error
Regards
#include <iostream.h>
#include <windows.h>
 
int main(int argc, char **argv)
 
{
      WORD wVersionRequested = MAKEWORD(1,1);
      WSADATA wsaData;
      int nRet;
 
    
 
      if (argc != 3)
      {
            fprintf(stderr,
                  "\nSyntax: GetHTTP ServerName FullPathName\n");
            return 0;
      }
 
      //
      // Initialize WinSock.dll
      //
      nRet = WSAStartup(wVersionRequested, &wsaData);
      if (nRet)
      {
            fprintf(stderr,"\nWSAStartup(): %d\n", nRet);
            WSACleanup();
            return 0;
      }
      
      if (wsaData.wVersion != wVersionRequested)
      {
            fprintf(stderr,"\nWinSock version not supported\n");
            WSACleanup();
            return 0;
