Stupid question about DWORD

Hi Experts,

I'm using a library that is STL-only.  My stupid question is - why is DWORD (or BOOL) not recognized?

Thank you,

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

DWORD and BOOL are type definitions and should be available if you include the "windows.h" header file.


Alternatively you could manually define these:

typedef unsigned long DWORD;
typedef int BOOL;
#ifndef TRUE
#define TRUE      1
#define FALSE     0
