Hi there! This probably is a very stupid question but I''ll ask it anyway... :-) I''ll be getting a new computer soon (OHH YES! :-)) and it will have WinXP Pro installed. Now I happen to know that in XP you can specify additional window styles (like (partially) transparent windows), etc. in Win32 API programming. My guess is I therefore need some new .libs and headers. Where can I get these? I don''t have a MSDN subscription if thats needed and I don''t the cash for it too... Or maybe can I download them from msdn.microsoft.com? I couldn''t find them... Greetz, MainForze

you need the latest platform sdk (free). you may want to consider downloading the entire thing to your harddrive and installing it from there.
