    [RESOLVED] PCONTEXT undefined

    I don't use C++ often, so probably doing everything wrong ...

    I'm trying to use some simple functions found on the forum.
    Getting some errors about
    * LONG being undefined, so included <Windef.h>
    * FILETIME being undefined, so included <WinBase.h>
    ...

    Now PCONTEXT is undefined (in WinBase.h line typedef PCONTEXT LPCONTEXT;) and I don't know where to get it's definition.
    And also other syntax errors on WinBase (line IN va_list *Arguments)

    I'm using VisualStudio.NET, VC++ version 7.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Thks

    Remove those includes and replace them with windows.h
    Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place.
    Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by
    definition, not smart enough to debug it.

    Was in bit of hurry when writing that previous post...

    Including windows.h is surprisingly often sufficient and when it's not enough it's mentioned in MSDN. Check out these examples:

    For the function CreateWindow, http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms632679.aspx, MSDN states: declared in Winuser.h, include Windows.h; requires linking to User32.lib. This is kind of the normal situation, even if another header declares the stuff windows.h shall be included.

    Some functions requires other headers and MSDN also clearly states this. For instance the function getsockname, http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...43(VS.85).aspx, MSDN states: is declared in Winsock2.h; requires linking with Ws2_32.lib
