MS linker by default allocates console window for programm if he see a main function as entry point and not allocates if he see a WinMain function as entry point. So, if I don't want ugly console window for gui app, I can specify SUBSYTEM:WINDOWS linker flag and change a main to WinMain. But I want to use ENTRY linker flag and do not modify source code. With ENTRY flag a executable successfully compiled, but crashes at startup. Any valid D Way workaround? -- >dmd -release -m64 -L/SUBSYSTEM:WINDOWS fl64.lib fl_test.d >LIBCMT.lib(wincrt0.obj) : error LNK2019: unresolved external >symbol WinMain >referenced in function __tmainCRTStartup >fl_test.exe : fatal error LNK1120: 1 unresolved externals >--- errorlevel 1120 -- When compiling without modification in source. P.S.: Win 8 64 bit, Dmd 2.061. fl64.lib and fl64.dll - custom library.
