    VS 2005 throwing errors with new project

    I created a new project in 2005. I tried both win32 console and win32 gui project types. The code for both throws the same compile time errors complaining about PVOID64. Anyone have a fix or workaround for this?


    Update ---

    I fixed the problem. In the file winnt.h as it is included with the vc8 sdk the line
    Code:
    typedef void * POINTER_64 PVOID64;
    should be changed to
    Code:
    typedef void *POINTER_64;
    typedef void *PVOID64;
    leave it to microsoft to make end users fix their code

    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.
