I have an old version of SDK in Visual C++.
If I can go up on www.msdn.microsoft.com and get the latest API. why
would I want to use the old version from C++. I am running Windows 98.
If the new version is backward compatibile with windows 98 it would
seem that this would be the best way to go.

Your thoughts would be appreciated.

bazik, just don't try to read posts while on drugs ;)

shankle,
Yes, you could download the latest Platform SDK and use the new API's and their helpfiles. However, Platform SDK and MSDN reference are not the same. From my experience, the Platform SDK does not integrate with VC++ so you'll have to look everything up yourself instead of using F1 :(

Ok.

At least the newest Version installs a shortcut called "Integrate with Visual Studio" :)
