I need to copy a file from a volume to another, with a progress bar representation. I think CopyFileEx is the goal. But I cant use it. I have NT 4.0 SP3, VC++5.0 SP3, I include winbase.h, I "add to project" the file kernel32.lib, but I have the foll. error:
error C2065: 'CopyFileEx' : undeclared identifier
Error executing cl.exe. And if I use "::CopyFileEx" I obteined 'CopyFileEx' : is not a member of '`global namespace''
Help me please!!

open Stdafx.h file and comment the following line
#define VC_EXTRALEAN
Then rebuild all files.

No. the problem wasnt "#define VC_EXTRALEAN".
I could compile adding in stdafx.h the line:
#define _WIN32_WINNT 0x0400
that I found in some tech note in microsoft web site.
Anyway, thanks.
