c++.beta - DM C/C++ 3.46 problem with shell32.lib

After downloading and installing cd846.zip my code containing the following 

  hres = CoCreateInstance( CLSID_ShellLink, NULL, CLSCTX_INPROC_SERVER, 
IID_IShellLink, (LPVOID *)&psl);

compiles well, but during runtime produces the result:

 hres == REGDB_E_CLASSNOTREG ( 0x80040154 )

Exactly the same code runs without problems with prior versions of DMC.

The reason for this behaviour is the shell32.lib file. The older one is from 
09.08.1996  with a file size of 212.480 Bytes.
The new lib from 02.01.2006 has a lenght of 16.896 Bytes.

Is there a workaround or a fix for this problem ??

Try linking with the older uuid.lib.
