visual c++ compile error

When I tried to compile a visual c++ project, I loaded the .dsw file and build it. But it always gave me the error:

Compiling...
VideoDisplay.cpp
C:\shiming\VirtualDub\sourcecode\VirtualDub\source\VideoDisplay.cpp(54) : error C2065: 'SM_REMOTESESSION' : undeclared identifier
C:\shiming\VirtualDub\sourcecode\VirtualDub\source\VideoDisplay.cpp(167) : error C2065: 'GetWindowLongPtr' : undeclared identifier
 ...

I mean, it didn't told me that it could not find the header file. But I think 'SM_REMOTESESSION' is defined by MSDN header. I downloaded SDK. I don't know what's the reason.

Anyone can help?

Thank you!

Try adding
#include <windows.h>
in your VideoDisplay.cpp file

SM_REMOTESESSION is defined in WinUser.h, which is in the platform SDK :

#if(WINVER >= 0x0500)
#define SM_REMOTESESSION        0x1000

...
#endif /* WINVER >= 0x0500 */

In msdn you will find
Header: Declared in Winuser.h; include Windows.h.
means we just need to include Windows.h
For e.g you can have a look at the link,
