i am making a dialer i want it to run on all windows platforms 98, 2000, XP
this is part of code

#pragma warn -dup
#define WINVER 0x400
#include <ras.h>

    char newentryname[100];
    DWORD entrysize, configsize, error;
    BYTE configbuffer[512];
    bool password;
    char buffer[512];

    configsize = sizeof(configbuffer);
    RASENTRY entry;

    String name = (String)entryname;
    strcpy(newentryname, name.c_str());

    memset(&entry, 0, sizeof(RASENTRY));
    entrysize = sizeof(RASENTRY);
    entry.dwSize = sizeof(RASENTRY);

        int version1=GetOSVersion();
        if (version1==1)
        {
                entry.dwfOptions=8984;
        }
        else if(version1==2)
        {
                //entry.dwfOptions=1024197400;
                entry.dwfOptions=RASEO_SwCompression|RASEO_IpHeaderCompression|RASEO_RemoteDefaultGateway|RASEO_ModemLights|0x01000000|0x04000000;
                  //entry.dwType=RASET_Phone;
        }
        else if(version1==3)
        {
                entry.dwfOptions=RASEO_SwCompression|RASEO_IpHeaderCompression|RASEO_RemoteDefaultGateway|RASEO_ModemLights;
        }
        else {ShowMessage("Can not detect OS Version");}
       
                String strDeviceType=GetDeviceType();
                String strDeviceName=GetDeviceName();
                   strcpy(entry.szDeviceType, strDeviceType.c_str());
            strcpy(entry.szDeviceName, strDeviceName.c_str());
              strcpy(entry.szLocalPhoneNumber, "07777007");
              strcpy(entry.szDeviceType,RASDT_Modem);
              entry.dwFramingProtocol=RASFP_Ppp;
                entry.dwfNetProtocols=RASNP_Ip;

        error = RasSetEntryProperties (NULL, newentryname,&entry, entrysize, configbuffer, configsize);
    if(error)
    {
        RasGetErrorString(error, buffer, sizeof(buffer));
        ShowMessage(buffer);
        return false;
    }
    return true;

but this only work on win 98 when i try to put some other properties for win 2000 the compiler stops with error message it does not understand these properties unless i change
#define WINVER 0x400
with
#define WINVER 0x500

but i want one program to run on all platforms
and when i ignore this line and dont pass it an error message is generated saying an incorrect structure size , ithink it is the RASENTRY structure
what is the solution for that problem
thx

You need to work with WINVER 0x400 for it to work on all versions. Or you can create a different DLL for each windows version and compile it with different WINVER values and options.

Something like this (pseudo code):

  ver = GetWindowsVersion();
  switch(ver)
  {
  case Win95: hLib = LoadLibrary("dialer95.dll"); break;
  case Win98: hLib = LoadLibrary("dialer98.dll"); break;
  case Win2k: hLib = LoadLibrary("dialer2k.dll"); break;
  case WinXP: hLib = LoadLibrary("dialerxp.dll"); break;
  }
  // Now load the address procs from hLib and call the procedures
  // each dll would be compiled with different options (WINVER for instance)
