I'm running MS Visual C++ 6.0 and I've just downloaded the DirectX 9 SDK from microsoft.com. Now, whenever I try and compile some programs I get the error message from all of the newly installed ".h" files that contains references to a type called DWORD_PTR. For example, the following code
[code]typedef DWORD_PTR HSEMAPHORE;[/code]generates the error
[code]missing ';' before identifier 'HSEMAPHORE'[/code]
I can solve the problem by adding the following line before all my "#include" statements:[code]typedef unsigned long;[/code]but I still get the same for other types (e.g. LONG_PTR). Is there a header file I can include which will define all these new types that are used by the WinAPI?
Thanks in advance,
