GetNextWindow oddity

this is going to seem like an odd request, but I am stumped...  I need to know what dll file GetNextWindow is _really_ in.  According to MSDN, it's inside of User32.lib, so I should be able to load user32.dll and snag it out of there, but after further investigation, GetNextWindow is _NOT_ in User32.dll.  I searched kernel as well, and i couldn't find in there either.  I am feeling rather silly from this, but I need to know the .dll file it's located in.  I am running XP, but I would like it to work from Win95 thru XP...

Here are hits from a 2000 box:

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\mrw40d.dll
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\mrw40ud.dll
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\mrwo40d.dll
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\mrwo40ud.dll
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\msw40d.dll
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\msw40ud.dll
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\mswo40d.dll
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\mswo40ud.dll

Note that in winuser.h, GetNextWindow is #defined as GetWindow:

#define GetNextWindow(hWnd, wCmd) GetWindow(hWnd, wCmd)


All those dlls in the previous post are variations on the MFC40.DLL family.

As cookre noted, GetNextWindow() is a pseudonym for GetWindow().

Note that GetWindow() is exported by USER32.DLL.

The DLLs that cookre noted are NOT likely to be installed on any system that does not have Visual Studio installed.  In other words, they are not standard Windows DLLs.  If you need GetNextWindow(), load USER32.DLL and call GetProcAddress() for GetWindow().
