the deal with visual c++ express 2005

I had to install Visual C++ Express, the 2005 version, in order to take a look at some windows code. The thing is, by default, you can’t write “windows-specific” code with it. It wouldn’t find windows.h.

After some googling, I found out that I needed to install Microsoft Platform SDK … which I did, but then I kept receiving linker error messages like this one :

unresolved external symbol __imp__DestroyWindow@4

Googling some more, I found out the solution for it here. Long story short, you need to modify the corewin_express.vsprops and include the additional libs.
