Compiler probs with O/S version

Hi,

I am getting an error when compiling :

..\..\..\..\Intermediate\ProxyStub\gndbaseps\gndbase_p.c(106) : fatal error C118
9: #error :  You need a Windows 2000 or later to run this stub because it uses t
hese features:
NMAKE : fatal error U1077: 'cl' : return code '0x2'
Stop.
Error executing c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe.

I am building on WIN 2003 Server, and i know that the problem is due to having the wrong O/S code, but i dont know where the compiler checks for this version of windows. I would ideally like to change the code so that the compiler accepts the new windows O/S version. Does anybody know if this is possible. ? ?

This is the part of the code it runs through to generate the error :

#if !defined(__RPC_WIN32__)
#error  Invalid build platform for this stub.
#endif

#if !(TARGET_IS_NT50_OR_LATER)
#error You need a Windows 2000 or later to run this stub because it uses these features:
#error   /robust command line switch.
#error However, your C/C++ compilation flags indicate you intend to run this app on earlier systems.
#error This app will die there with the RPC_X_WRONG_STUB_VERSION error.
#endif

i would be very greatful of any help in finding out how the compiler checks for the O/S version.

Kind Regards
Jon.

You can correct this behaviour by changing  __RPCNDR_H_VERSION__ to the appropriate version or just

#define TARGET_IS_NT50_OR_LATER

in your code - just add it to the global definition list in the compiler options dialog.
