I've noticed a couple of anomalies like that between Oct 2001 and the current stuff - all they have to do is maintain backwards compatibility :)
The Core SDK download includes a current MSDN of the Win32 API. If your Oct 2001 MSDN came from a VC++ install, you'll still have to use it for help on CRT, MFC, ATL, the IDE, etc...
If you already knew that, shame on you for using Oct 2001 docs ;)
So I'm not totally off-topic, here's the online reference bithub mentioned: GetPrivateProfileString()
And post your actual code skywind so we can inspect it.
Yeah, I've read the MSDN January 2004. If only they had a small example :(
There is only one funtion in my program to response the WM_BNCLICKED event
MessageBox(.....);//It shows the input values
My God ! It works , it works !
I don't know why but it works. What a day !
Thanks a lot guys !
I actually don't use MSDN all that much, and since we still program on VC++ 6.0, I'm not too worried about missing out on the new stuff. :)
But you all are correct, the current version says it can be NULL, and you should definitely prefer the latest version to one that is three years old!
