Hi people, I researched a bit and read the other tread about compiling the wxwdigets through vs but I am still having trouble with it. I chose unicode release and debug for all the wx projects but it doesn't compile and have errors. They are all associated with winnt.h and winbase.h
Error	1	error C2146: syntax error : missing ';' before identifier 'PVOID64'	c:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\PlatformSDK\include\winnt.h	222
Error	2	error C4430: missing type specifier - int assumed. Note: C++ does not support default-int	c:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\PlatformSDK\include\winnt.h	222
Error	3	error C2146: syntax error : missing ';' before identifier 'Buffer'	c:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\PlatformSDK\include\winnt.h	5940
Error	4	error C4430: missing type specifier - int assumed. Note: C++ does not support default-int	c:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\PlatformSDK\include\winnt.h	5940

Gage64,

Thanks but I wasn't trying to compile something I wrote. I was just trying to follow the instruction to setup wxwdigets and compile the projects that came with the package.

I still can't compile the wx.dsw that came with wxwidgets, does anyone had this problem before?

Mahalo,
Wiinis
