Simple window but doesn't work

Issue

I have created this simple window:

#include <windows.h>

#define MAX_LOADSTRING 100
#define IDS_APP_TITLE           103

#define IDD_ABOUTBOX            103
#define IDM_ABOUT               104
#define IDM_EXIT                105
#define IDI_PROVIAMO            107
#define IDI_SMALL               108
#define IDC_PROVIAMO            109
#define IDC_MYICON              2
#ifndef IDC_STATIC
#define IDC_STATIC              -1
#endif
// Next default values for new objects

#define _APS_NEXT_CONTROL_VALUE     1000
#define _APS_NEXT_SYMED_VALUE       110
#endif
#endif

but I get these errors:

Build FAILED.

Why ?

Solution

You must include tchar.h to resolve the error.
