Ive been looking all over the microsoft website to download the platform sdk for Windows XP to use with MSVC 2005. Anyone know where to get it?

Ok, a quick google for 'platform sdk' gives lots of results. The first two refer to Windows Server 2003 so not useful. Third option is reference to Visual C++ (Express, but that will be OK). Following this link takes you to the MSDN site with instructions for installing the platform SDK. Step 2 has a link to the page with the download for the SDK.

Nope, it is useful and is exactly what you want (in fact, if you follow the link on the VC++EE site it takes you to the download site for the Windows Server 2003 R2 PSDK). [smile]

Note to self: must read title on web page. Although it says Windows Server 2003 it appears to be OK for doing XP development.

Note: the version of the SDK refers to the latest version of Windows that it supports. The SDKs support all previous versions as well.
