Wonder what the Dbghelp.lib has to do with it

Because he is using:


and this requires the Dbghelp.lib etc... see:

Okay, so I am doing everything you are but mine still wont work. I haven't made any changes, someone else suggested adding that header file - I took it back out.

No, my setup is all default as set when VS was installed. I presume you are running Windows 7 also? Have you checked the folder as above for the required lib file etc?
