When you make a windows program you have to include a whole bunch of code written by Microsoft, that header is some of that code.

To elaborate on this statement sometimes when you include files and then you use these identifiers in your code but use them incorrectly, VC++ will give you an error response when compiling. Some of these messages are along the lines of "...error using blah. See definition of blah" and when you click on that it takes you to the definition. It is important to understand that there is nothing wrong with that portion of the code, but rather the way you are trying to use it in your code.
I''m not saying that there isn''t bugs even with the code that ships with VC (or any other compiler ) but you''re better off not changing any other source code that came with your compiler, libraries, etc unless you really know what you are doing. At the very least make a copy of the file before your change it. On the other side of that coin, it''s a real good way to learn.
