    Can't compile netapi32.dll functions (Windows API)

    Hi. Whenever I try to compile Network Management functions of windows api, like NetWkstaSetInfo or NetShareEnum, I receive a build error like "undefined reference to 'NetWkstaSetInfo@16' ". The @16 always comes appended to the function name, maybe it refers to 16-bits versions?

    The _WIN32_WINNT constant have already been set to 0x500 and a #pragma comment(lib, "netapi32.lib") line inserted, but none solved my problem. By the way, I searched my computer for the netapi32.lib file and couldn't find it. Is it necessary to install the SDK for these calls to work? I can use windows.h and call many Windows API functions already.

    I'm using Code::Blocks IDE (mingw compiler).

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, this is exactly what you need, Platform SDK.
    Best regards,

    Thanks for the reply. Installing the SDK and linking the netapi32.lib library solved the problem.
