how to use WINVER ?

Post by Mark Beile » Mon, 09 Apr 2007 03:34:01

I am trying to target Win98 and later. I set WINVER=0x0410 as it seems I am
suppose to, but it isn't working as I expect. For example, I don't get
IDC_HAND defined. The docs say that IDC_HAND is available in Win98 and

but the latest platform SDK has this:

#if(WINVER >= 0x0500)

#endif /* WINVER >= 0x0500 */

so I don't get IDC_HAND defined.

Is the documenation wrong, or is the platform SDK wrong, or am I not
understanding something? Any tips would be great.



1. Using WINVER

2. WINVER=0x500 or WINVER=0x400


Should I compile my wxWindows application for Windows
with WINVER set to 0x500 or 0x400.

I am asking this question because an icon resource
IDC_HAND is defined for WINVER >= 0x500. I want to use
that in my app and wanted to double check if that can
I have problem with wxWindows library.

I am using wxWidgets 2.4.2 for Windows and Linux.
