I've done this but <windows.h> seems to leave my code in a tangle :)
I suddenly have parse errors in my own header files, on normal
function declerations. I can only deduce that windows.h is leaving an
open ifdef or has unterminated strings or something silly.
Anybody encounter this before? Any suggestions ?
I can put the compiler output online if someone wants to take a look,
and ofcourse some code snippets.
