how can I use ConvertHexStringToDWORD function.
This function is described in MSDN but I can not use it because
the compiler doesn't recognize this function.
When I scan all fills in the visual studio directory, this function is not found.

Why don't you simply use

#include <stdlib.h>

char* pszHex="0xabe75340";
char* pc;

dw = (DWORD) strtoul ( pszHex, &pc, 16);
