Playing .wav files

I am having trouble getting this to build successfully.

//program plays simple .wav file
#include // mciSendString()
#pragma comment(lib,"winmm.lib")

using namespace std;

int main()
string input;
cout << "Plays ding.wav music file in" << endl;
cout << "the windows media directory from this project folder...";

// plays the sound from the project folder of the program
PlaySound(TEXT("ding.wav"), NULL, SND_FILENAME | SND_ASYNC);

return 0;

I keep getting: 1>MSVCRTD.lib(crtexew.obj) : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol _WinMain@16 referenced in function ___tmainCRTStartup
as an error in the build log.
Any ideas?
