WINAPI program has DOS window
« on: June 29, 2008, 09:41:05 am »
hi,
I wrote a very simple program in c using windows.h and when I compile it and run it I get a DOS window and them my windows message box

Code: [Select]
#include <windows.h>
int WINAPI WinMain(HINSTANCE hInstance, HINSTANCE hPrevInstance, LPSTR lpCmdLine, int nCmdShow) {
        MessageBox(NULL, "Good Morning", "BOO!!!", MB_OK);
    return 0;
}

this is the code though I think it's irelevant, and I tryed compiling the code in Visual c++ and I don't get the DOS window there.

Can anyone pls tell me how to get rid of that?

Hi !

Did you chose the right project template (Win32 GUI project) to build your exe?

Add -mwindows to linker options.
Be a part of the solution, not a part of the problem.

Two Ways:
1. you can change the "built target"  into "release"

2.  In the project->properties->build targets ,  the "Type" choose "GUI application"


They are mostly the same
