It compiles fine but you have a linking problem.
Go to Project->Settings, Tab: "C/C++", Category: "Code Generation",
and make sure every project uses the same run-time library.
(Probably your empty Win32 project uses "Debug Single-Threaded" libraries
and SDL uses "Debug Multithreaded [DLL]".

It's always a good idea to just copy makefiles and work from that.
