c++ - Problem with DM Build

I am new to DM so I am trying an easy programe.

#include <stdio.h>

int main(void)
{
    printf("This is a short C programme.");

    return 0;

}

This compiles and runs in the DOS command window. However when I run DM it
compiles OK but when I try to build it keeps giving me the following error.


link /NOI /DE /PACKF /XN /NT /ENTRY:WinMainCRTStartup /BAS:4194304 /A:512
 tst.LNK
Error: c:\dm\lib\SNN.lib(winstart)  : Symbol Undefined _WinMain 16
Errors: 1  Warnings: 0
Build failed

I am running DM on XP. Has anybody got an answer.

Are you using the IDDE?
The problem is you are linking the program as a GUI program which means that
your main entry point would be WinMain, not main!
If you want this to work, you should remove the /ENTRY:WinMainCRTStartup part
from the Link command line. In the IDDE you do this by selecting "Console" as
target.
