First, search MSVC online help for the topic "Porting 16-Bit Code to 32-Bit Windows".  It contains a fair amount of information that will help you.

If you prefer online docs, check the following URLs:
http://premium.microsoft.com/msdn/library/devprods/vs6/vc++/vccore/_core_differences_between_16.2d.bit_windows_and_32.2d.bit_windows.3a_.overview.htm
http://premium.microsoft.com/msdn/library/devprods/vs6/vc++/vccore/_core_porting_16.2d.bit_code_to_32.2d.bit_windows.htm

Accessing the info requires registration to MSDN online but it is free and mostly painless.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Hmmm...  Did you read the URLs?  They *do* contain detailed instructions.  I don't think there is a better reference.

However, if you insist on a book, check this one:  "Porting to Win32: A Guide to Making Your Applications Ready for the 32-Bit Future of Windows" by Thomas Lauer.  ISBN: 0387945725
