    A grep over the .lib files of the platform SDK suggests that uuid.lib ought to contain the symbol.

    I don't know how that works for Dev-C++, as I've never used MinGW.

    The only place I could find it is at ftp://collage.etel.ru/Distr/vs6/VC98/LIB/UUID.LIB.
    But the server won't respond to me.

    You would mind sending it to me would you?

    Er, why not just download and install the platform SDK?

    Because I'm on dial-up. And it would take forever. But uuid.lib is only 1mb.

    You should be able to get microsoft to send you the psdk on cd/dvd for the price of postage.

    But it looks like your mingw is out of date. If you are using the version of mingw that comes with dev-cpp then you should know there have been a great number of updates to MinGW since then - you can get updates here:

    http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...?group_id=2435

    If the winapi updates are all you need then just download w32api-3.10 but it would be prudent to update everything if you can.

    Dev-cpp also has some kind of package manager with it that you may be able to use to get updates.
