OK,a dumb and simple question - I'm recompiling my ap in VS2008 (from 6.0).  Every file gives the warning:

 WINVER not defined. Defaulting to 0x0600 (Windows Vista)

What is my best strategy?  Where to set WINVER, what to set it to.....

Thanks!

If that still is related to your ast Q, set it to 0x501, which will keep all features out that are specific for versions later than XP. As a rule of thumb: Set that to resemble the oldest Windows version you want to support. Wehre to set? Either before any '#include <windows.h>' directive or better project wide in your project settings  (ALT+F7) under "Configuration Properties|C++|Preprocessor|Preprocessor Definitions" As "WINVER=0x501".
