c++.windows.32-bits - Problem compiling DX9 with 8.38 compiler

Here's a strange thing.  I just upgraded my CD installation to the 8.38 compiler
using the update zip file.  I had an existing project to build one of the DX9
samples which built just fine under the 8.37 compiler.  However, when I tried to
rebuild with 8.38, I can't compile the source.  I get:

sc Meshes.cpp -mn -o+time -WA -3 -a8 -c -oMeshes.obj 
Error: e:\dx90sdk\include\d3dx9math.inl(966): undefined identifier 'UINT_PTR'
Error: e:\dx90sdk\include\d3dx9math.inl(979): ')' expected
Lines Processed: 138323  Errors: 2  Warnings: 0
Build failed

I positioned the DirectX includes and libs both before and after the PSDK
directories and it makes no difference.  I can create a project using AppExpress
and it builds correctly.

Did something change in the compiler (I'm thinking implicit #defines here) with
the 8.38 release which is causing a header to not be included?  Any suggestions
would be appreciated!

Never mind!  I figured it out on my own.  Chalk this one up to 'silliness on the
part of the programmer'!   :)

After I installed the update, I forgot to re-update my sc.ini file to point to
the updated PSDK files I have (downloaded from MS and converted using coff2omf).
After doing that, it builds just fine again.

Oh, well.  Sometimes it the easy ones that give you the most trouble.
