This sort of thing is most likely to be incompatibility between the
libraries and your executable, caused by how the two are linked (this
can happen on win32 systems in many ways, the most common is linking
against the wrong C runtime library).

That's wrong, but won't be causing your problem in this case. main()
must return int.

The rest of this looks fine, so it's probably a linking problem.

Even if it were the files, if vorbisfile were crashing, that would be a bug.
Sorry I can't give you any more specific advice - hopefully one of the
windows developers on the list will be able to (I don't use windows
regularly myself, and you didn't give any details about what
development tools you're using).
