There is no compiler directive for that. But you can use code:

  if GetVersion and $80000000 = 0 then
    ShowMessage('winNT family')
  else
    ShowMessage('win9x family');

Regards, Madshi.

A declaration? You mean a variable or a type or a const? Sorry, no go... Or what do you mean? Please post the declaration you're talking about here - together with why you need to prevent it from being executed. Maybe we can find another solution...
