using CreateWaitableTimer in Non-MFC Code?
Posted on 1998-01-15
I am trying to include the function CreateWaitableTimer() and its associated functions into a 'C' program, that otherwise doesn't have anything to do with Windows or MFC.
It says to #include <winbase.h>. I did this. I then tried to compile it but got errors about DWORD. I found the definition of DWORD in windef.h, but then got errors in winnt.h about "winnt.h(2057) syntax error: identifier 'PCONTEXT' ". Well, PCONTEXT is defined above that in the same file.hhmmmmmm.
Anyway, it looks like I could spend days adding #include files into my file just to use this function, and getting them in the proper order. Can anyone help me use this function? What do I need to #include? Then comes the question of what libs I need to link with.....
