I was diligently working on my program, testing and debugging frequently, until a mysterious error cropped up:

LIBCD.lib(mbctype.obj) : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol ___lc_codupage
Debug/test.exe : fatal error LNK1120: 1 unresolved externals
Error executing link.exe.

test.exe - 2 error(s), 0 warning(s)

After pouring through my program and not finding any obvious faults, I systematically eliminated parts of my program until there was nothing left to really compile, yet the error persisted. Finally, I made a new blank project as shown below and still got the error. So now I'm really worried. Would anyone happen to know what's going on? I use Win2K and VC++ 6.0.

using namespace std;

int main()
return 0;
