GetPrivateProfileString returns a zero length string under Win32s.  The same exe behaves as expected when running on NT or 95.  Compiler is VC4.0.  I took the source code and compiled it under Borland C/C++ v5.0, which can compile MFC 4.x and got the same result.  Anyone been able to get this API call to work under Win32s ?

Thanks.
