Error while running with GDI+ in VC++6 application

Dear experts,
I've decided to enable my VC++6 with GDI+ graphics. By adding the following code:

typedef unsigned __int64 ULONG_PTR
#include <gdiplus.h>
using namespace Gdiplus;
#pragma comment (lib, "Gdiplus.lib")

to stdafx.h, I get the following error:

gdiplus.h(18) : error C2144: syntax error : missing ';' before type 'IDirectDrawSurface7'

I've tried to add the additional code needed to get VC++6 application running with GDI+, but still get the same error.
I'd be greatly appreciated for any suggestion.

// write the following in stdafx.h
// delete the typedef
//typedef unsigned __int64 ULONG_PTR
#include <ddraw.h>
#include <gdiplus.h>
using namespace Gdiplus;
#pragma comment (lib, "Gdiplus.lib")

Followig your comments:
if I don't define "typedef unsigned __int64 ULONG_PTR" I get the following error: diplusinit.h(32) : error C2065: 'ULONG_PTR' : undeclared identifier. If I do, I get the following error: ddraw.h(38) : error C2144: syntax error : missing ';' before type 'int'.
It would be nice you could take a look at the project, sure if you have vc++6 installed. Probably I miss something basic.

Will your db performance match your db growth?

In Percona’s white paper “Performance at Scale: Keeping Your Database on Its Toes,” we take a high-level approach to what you need to think about when planning for database scalability.

Check the order of your include paths in tools->options->directories, make sure that the new sdk paths are listed before anythin else, this goes for includes and for libs. You may hit some wrong (old) files, if the order is incorrect.
