[R] Rprintf will not build in my C++ compiler

I have searched through the threads and "Rprintf" causing a build error dosen't seem to be a problem for anyone else. And I've read through "R Extensions" and "An Introduction to the .C Interface to R" and there doesn't seem to be any troubleshooting for my problem.

My code is straight from "An Introduction to the .C Interface to R" pg. 3. And my compiler is VC++ 2005 Express

#include <R.h>

void hello( int *n ) {

    int i ;
    for( i = 0 ; i < *n ; i++ ) {

        Rprintf( "Hello, world!\n" ) ;

When I try to build this code, I recieve 2 error massages,
"error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol _Rprintf referenced in function
"void _cdecl hello(int *n)" (?hello@@YAXPAH_at_Z)"
"fatal error LNK1120: 1 unresolved externals"

To be honest, I'm not exactly sure what these errors mean, I'm still learning C++.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
