_WIN32_WINNT = 0x0501 in VC++ .net

As soon as I modify my stdafx.h to define _WIN32_WINNT as 0x0501 (WinXP) instead of 0x0400 (Win2000) I get the following errors when I build.

c:\...\afxwin.h(3292) : error C2061: syntax error : identifier 'PSCROLLBARINFO'
c:\...\afxwin4.inl(148) : error C2065: 'PSCROLLBARINFO' : undeclared identifier
c:\...\afxwin4.inl(148) : error C2146: syntax error : missing ')' before identifier 'pScrollInfo'
c:\...\afxwin4.inl(148) : error C2761: 'BOOL CScrollBar::GetScrollBarInfo(void) const' : member function redeclaration not allowed
c:\...\afxwin4.inl(148) : error C2059: syntax error : ')'
c:\...\afxwin4.inl(149) : error C2143: syntax error : missing ';' before '{'
c:\...\afxwin4.inl(149) : error C2447: '{' : missing function header (old-style formal list?)
c:\...\afxcmn3.inl(18) : error C2065: 'CCM_SETWINDOWTHEME' : undeclared identifier

How can I define _WIN32_WINNT to WinXP without breaking MFC?

I am new to EE, so I'm setting this question as moderate, I don't know if it's enough, or too much.

I think you are using an OLD version of the Windows Platform SDK.  Download the current SDK from MSDN.MICROSOFT.COM (it's a free download) and install it.  Be sure Visual Studio has IT in the include file and library search path instead of the old one and rebuild.

No, I'm not.

And I found how to do it. hehe. After 5 hours of poking around, I found I needed to also set the WINVER to 0x0501 and _WIN32_IE to 0x0600.

Now, how do I delete/null this question?
