You're not linking against the right library.  Unfortunately, I'm not 
100% positive which library it is.  However, my windowing stuff is linked 
against: -lcomdlg32 -luser32 -ladvapi32 -lgdi32.

Unless someone else can tell you which one specifically, I'd suggest 
linking against each one individually until the message goes away.  :)

See ya around the Mulberry bush.
