I had so swap computer with my mom this weekend, and she's using Vista and I'm XP. Since I haven't worked on her computer before, I installed Visual C++ 2008 Express (9.0) with SDL libraries. Then, when I got back home, I moved the project folder to my computer with XP and tried to opened. It said, it is a newer version, can't open it, blah, blah, blah. Fine, no suprise there, so I installed 2008 Express and copied the added folders from my VC8 to my VC9 folder. Then things started happen, whenever I compile now, I get compiler errors from SDL_image.h, which isn't mine and has always worked for me in the past. I tried to make a clean install of SDL with new lib-files, headers and DLLs, but same thing. So, is there any special issue when moving from Vista to XP with a project in VC++? Is there any changes that's been made? (I'm not hi-tech on OS, so maybe it's just something generally)

If required I can get a more detailed answered, but out of my head I can say I get three syntax errors and one syntax error with the "old format style?". I tried opening it on Vista again, and it was the same thing there! Oh, boy, I don't want to lose that...
