#include <stdio.h>

int main()
{
	printf("hello\n");
	return 0;
}

It's all the more frustrating because I've designed stuff MUCH more complicated on this computer. My errors seem to be all linking errors. I've done all I can think of, which was really just to make sure my subsystem was set to console.

I'm using 64 bit Vista and one thing I wonder if I should mention is that for some time now when I start a program I'm told that kernel32.lib can't be found. I've found the library in some Microsoft SDK folder and I add that to the library search path but I wonder why it isn't done automatically and thought it might suggest that something is wrong.

You could probably dig around and figure out what the problem is, but an easy first step is to reinstall/repair Visual Studio. Make sure the installation is clean before doing any crazy troubleshooting. It could just be a corrupt DLL or two. :)

kernel32.lib can't be found. I've found the library in some Microsoft SDK folder and I add that to the library search path but ... something is wrong.

your .NET installation is broken. Unless you're some sort of windows/.NET guru, the chance of you fixing it correctly is small.

uninstall all visual studio and .NET components, reboot, then reinstall.
