No matter how I create a Visual C++ 2010 project I keep getting   main.cpp
MSVCRTD.lib(crtexe.obj) : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol _main referenced in function ___tmainCRTStartup. I have even gone to a very basic entry point for Visual C++. I have tried changing the linker and follow any Visual C++ 2010 demo that I could, I keep getting the same error as above.
#include <iostream>

using namespace std;

int Main(void)
{
	
	return 0; 
}
