What program is failing to start?

(you need to provide way more information than that if you want us to figure out what's wrong)

Sorry, I thought it was assumed when I said that. I was making the program in the tutorial here - http://www.sfml-dev.org/tutorials/2.0/start-vc.php -. Now, I followed the tutorial step by step multiple times. Now, the program starts but that error code appears

I thought it'd be one of the example programs that come with the source code.  In fact I had no idea VS was involved.

Did you compile it in debug mode?  Could you run it in debug mode so we get a meaningful error message?

This is the only output I can find, otherwise the other error code I posted

Code: [Select]
'SFMLTestA.exe' (Win32): Loaded 'C:\Users\Brandon Danyluk\Desktop\C++ Game Making (SFML)\SFMLTestA\Debug\SFMLTestA.exe'. Symbols loaded.
'SFMLTestA.exe' (Win32): Loaded 'C:\Windows\SysWOW64\ntdll.dll'. Cannot find or open the PDB file.
'SFMLTestA.exe' (Win32): Loaded 'C:\Windows\SysWOW64\kernel32.dll'. Cannot find or open the PDB file.
'SFMLTestA.exe' (Win32): Loaded 'C:\Windows\SysWOW64\KernelBase.dll'. Cannot find or open the PDB file.
'SFMLTestA.exe' (Win32): Loaded 'C:\ProgramData\Norton\{0C55C096-0F1D-4F28-AAA2-85EF591126E7}\N360_20.3.0.36\Definitions\BASHDefs\20130903.002\UMEngx86.dll'. Cannot find or open the PDB file.
The program '[9460] SFMLTestA.exe' has exited with code -1073741701 (0xc000007b).

That is the only output I can find

It won't even tell you what statement it exits on?

Step through it with the debugger to get more info.

No, it doesnt say what it ends on. I have no idea why. And I am running it with the debugger, and that's all that shows. Please do tell me if you mean something else

Also, the console loads (it is a console app), but it will just pop up an error box saying "The program '[4428] SFMLTestA.exe' has exited with code -1073741701 (0xc000007b)."

Cheers!

Then you're most likely not running it through the debugger, otherwise the application would halt at the crash location.

Have you made sure that you don't mix debug/release modes/libraries?
You're still using the code from the tutorial, right?

sfml-graphics.lib is release, and sfml-graphics-d.lib is debug? If so, yes. And also, when using the release debug, thing,  it does error with
Code: [Select]
Error 1 error LNK1181: cannot open input file 'sfml-graphics.lib' C:\Users\Brandon Danyluk\Desktop\C++ Game Making (SFML)\SFMLTestA\SFMLTestA\LINK SFMLTestA

Hello again, now when using release it says

Code: [Select]
The program can't start because sfml-graphics-2.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem
I have the file in my bin folder, and my folder where the exe is.

I'm pretty sure the .dlls should be in the same folder as the .exe, not inside an additional folder.

Thanks! It now works! Now, for future reference - Copy all DLL's to the executible. I just had to copy the DEBUG dlls aswell. As in sfml-graphics-d.dll.

Thanks for all the help!

Or just read the tutorials.
