Using _UNICODE for internalization

I am currently in the process of internalionalizing a product, so that it can handle Japanese characters on Windows NT environment.

With respect to this, changes relating to "char" have been made to "_TCHAR". Also, _TCHAR would be treated as "wchar_t" if _UNICODE is defined and as "char" if nothing is defined. Also, in the Output Category of the Link tab in the Project Settings dialog box, the Entry Point Symbol has been made to wWinMainCRTStartup.

Inspite of doing the above i.e. defining _UNICODE and setting wWinMainCRTStartup, it doesn't seem to recognise _UNICODE and gives Linker error LNK2001 : unresolved external symbol _wWinMain@16

Could someone suggest what is lacking in the above process.

Thanks and regards,
