I don't think I actually got that particular compiler error.  I mostly got
errors with API calls that didn't come with the default SDK that comes
with VC 6.0.  Do you have the latest from CVS?

To answer your question I'm not crazy...although Microsoft
could very well be... :-)

I'm using API calls in Windows NT that are the appropriate calls for
getting user profile information (such as profile folder, etc...).  They
happen not to be included in the libraries that VC6.0 provides.  Microsoft
doesn't provide their libraries on a per header/library basis...and I have
no intention of suggesting that you should just copy over the ones you
need from an SDK package.

I wish I had a better alternative for you.  I know downloading a large
file is a pain the rear...but that's the price of using Microsoft tools I I've found over the years.
