    Angry Microsoft VisualStudio2005 and NT4

    Hi everyone,
    I buy MVC2005 Professional Edition March 2006 and make MFC Dialog base application. Build and make exe. Run exe on SO NT4 ServicePack 6 and "... entry point GetLongPathNameW in Kernel32.dll" error. Why ?
    Thank for reply.

    Re: Microsoft VisualStudio2005 and NT4

    Check this link.
    where it is mentioned Windows NT and Windows 95: Include an additional header file called NewAPIs.h to make GetLongPathName available on these operating systems. The function is not implemented natively, but by a wrapper that uses other native functions on these systems. For details about using preprocessor directives that make the function available, see the header file. If you do not have this header file, you can download the most recent SDK from the SDK Update Site.

    Also if you use Unicode (which I beleive you do) you may have to install Microsoft Layer for Unicode.

    Post Re: Microsoft VisualStudio2005 and NT4

    Step:

    - Insert include, #include <NewAPIs.h>, in stafx.h
    - Compiled in Release Win32
    - Copy in target PC (with SO NT4 SP6) .exe file and mfc80u.dll, msvcr80.dll

    but error persist, GetLongPathNameW in Kernel32.dll

    Re: Microsoft VisualStudio2005 and NT4

    What version of kernel32.dll do you use?
    Check your kernel32.dll version using depends tool. Also check if GetLongPathNameW exists in your kernel32.dll.

    Also did you try to install Microsoft Layer for Unicode.

    Well, then you may take a look at my sample. The only thing is... to follow NewAPIs.h instructions literally.

    In a single file you create stub implementation (using #define COMPILE_NEWAPIS_STUBS definition), and anywhere else you use #define WANT_GETLONGPATHNAME_WRAPPER definition. After that you never forget to include stub .obj file into compilation. In my case it was stdafx.obj, but you definitely may use any other one.

    Being compiled the .exe file has no GetLongPathName import from kernel32.

    Hope this will hepl.

    BTW, I have no VS2005. Thank you for citing header.

    Re: Microsoft VisualStudio2005 and NT4

    Did you manage to compile for NT4 now?

    I was just playing around with VS2005 and VS2008 to check compatibility for NT4...
    I was able to run an STATICALLY compiled MFC build on NT4 - but it was a really small application as a first step.

    Re: Microsoft VisualStudio2005 and NT4

    There is a simple solution:

    Go to:
    Project settings
    C\C++
    Code Generation
    under Runtime Library select "Multi-Threaded (/MT)"

    I've just hit the same road block trying to test my DLL. After setting this to /MT, the DLL size went up a lot but it now works perfectly fine in Win NT4 SP6.
