NOTE: Per the previous sentence, I just copied it here, I wasn't involved in the testing. It was the person who posted
Is there a work-around?
Yes. My preferred workaround is the Legacy Extender library which you can link to and it will include the required functions to make the code work on Windows 9x/Me/NT4:
Legacy Extender for Visual Studio 2005/2008 (www.legacyextender.com)
You can build with Visual Studio 2008 (SP1 too) and the project will then run fine even on a vanilla Windows 95 box.
Legacy Extender is not a quick patch, it is a supported and tested solution. It is compatible with code optimization, and it recalculates the checksum when you edit the post-build version.
(Conflict of interest: I was involved in testing Legacy Extender!)
On a similar issue for kernel32.dll errors being generated when I try to install googletoolbar v4.0.1602.1060 IE beta
on a Win 2k Pro SP4 system. I get this error which prevents it being installed.
The procedure entry point WTSGetActiveConsoleSessionId could not be found in the dynamic link library
And also this one.
Of course I'm trying to reinstall it which I can't due to these errors.
GoogleUpdater could not load the file ci.dll. Please reinstall GoogleUpdater to fix this issue.
So, is my problem above due to Visual Studio 2008 not supporting Win 2K anymore? If so, then
the Google Toolbar people must being using VS 2008 although they say the toolbar can be installed
on a win 2K machine.
