c++ - DMC++ and WinXP

Is anyone using DMC++ on Win XP?  I just got the CD, and it installs and runs
fine.  The problem is the generated code seems to be always pre-XP.  All Windows
code tries to load the outdated WINSPOOL.DLL.  Can anyone give me a clue?  
Thanks in advance.

That's because the MS SDK on the CD is a little outdated. You can install the current SDK from MS, along with a couple of tweaks and some library conversion -- google for 'DMC MS SDK'.
