You should be including windows.h, which includes other include files.  Don't include the other include files dirrectly, let windows.h do it for you.

To make your program compile faster, #define WIN32_LEAN_AND_MEAN before #including <windows.h>.  If the above is defined, windows.h does not include some less commonly used include files.

It should.  Does it recognize any windows API functions aor are they all undefined?

It recognizes most of of the API functions, but Sleep() it doesnt, could it be because Sleep() is a win32 function?
I am using platform of win 3.x, because when i try to use the win32 platform, it writes in the error window: BCW: cannont build using requested tools.
...please help...

I can't check right now (I'll try to check later) but I'm 99% sure that Sleep() is part of the windows 3.x API.

It sounds to me like the problems is with BCW.  The requested tools might mean its compiler, linker, etc.  This is not an area I'm likely to be able to help you much in, but I'm willing to try.
