back again with another question.

i created a simple window in WIN32 mode, but it's giving me a linker error that i cannot isolate.

Your prototype WinProc is spelled different from the function WndProc. And also, the parameter list for both is different!

Also, don't forget to make sure the "WndProc" name in your WNDCLASSEX struct (line 25) matches the name of the other two "WndProc"s

thanks. had no idead i did that. maybe VS should come with spell checker....

i created a simple programe in win32 apllication, but it's giving me a linker error:

#include <stdio.h>
int main ()
{
    int A,B,C;
    printf("please enter two values");
    scanf("%d%d",&A,&B);
    C=A+B;
    printf("the sum of %d and %d is %d",A,B,C);
    return 0;
}

EROOR:
LINK : fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file "Debug/papa.exe"
Error executing link.exe.

do u please have any idea about this because as you can see i am a beginner

Chances are, "Debug/papa.exe" is still open. That is the program you wrote. Is it still running? You need to make sure that window is closed so papa isn't running any more. Otherwise, try shutting down your IDE (compiler) and restart it.

Edited 3 Years Ago by pyTony: fixed formatting

actually when i compile it it gives me neither warning nor error but when i run it a window tells me "this file does not exist.do you want to build it?"
I click on yes and than it give me "LINK : fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file "Debug/Text187.exe""
