    WindowFromDC for desktop HDC under Vista/7

    Hello all!

    I am trying to determine if a HDC points to the desktop. To do that I use WindowFromDC() which works fine under XP but returns 0 under Vista/7.

    Is there any way to determine it using some other method??

    Thank you all very much!!

    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.
