I've been trying to use AnimateWindow();.  I have included the header file necessary to use it, however I still get a compiler error after using it in my code.  Please show me an example of it used using the appropriate header files.  I am using VC++ 6.0 SP3.

#define WINVER  0x0500
#include <windows.h>

AnimateWindow is supported on Windows 2000 and Windows 98 or later.

I have Win '98, but my compiler doesn't recognize that AnimateWindow is defined.

You need to define WINVER as 0x0500. Have you done that?
