By default, Visual Studio 2010 does not create applications that can run on Windows 2000, Windows XP up to SP1, and Windows Server 2003 RTM. This is because a few extraneous functions were introduced in later versions of kernel32.dll. The page below provides the means to prevent incidental linkage against those functions and avoid dll hell.


OMG what a mess M$ has made! At least with the latest Visual C++ 2010. I just
installed and ran it. My 1st impression is that it's a terrible piece of bloatware (especially the messy SDK that got installed with it). Anyway, I thank the Internet-
gods for MingW. Please don't make it harder than it already is to build for MingW.
