Linker Errors

Hi Guys,

After I changed my WINVER, _WIN32_WINNT, and _WIN32_WINDOWS all to 0x501, in 
order to get access to PrintWindow, I get a bunch of linker errors that have 
stummped me.

It says it can't find _xGetMonitorInfo, _xMonitorFromWindow, and 

I suspect that I have to update my SDK, here is the question, if I'm using 
VS2003, can I update my SDK to get rid of this problem?

I've been compiling with 0x501 for years. I'm using vs2003 too. (I keep 
threating my wife to upgrade :)

My sdk is:
(R2)(3790.2075) I think I recall pretty clearly that I installed it 
after VS. It was a long time ago...

For what ever reason, this link shows a lesser version number.

Best, Dan.

error when migrating from 2004 to 2005
We have encountered some problem while migrating from 2004 to 2005, when upgrading the database, it gives us an error message about read-only files. We have searched the knowledge base and found that microsoft is aware of this problem and it is caused by the corruption within the database.

If I edit a bill or transaction in Bill Summary it is taking 11-12 seconds to come back to the Bills Summary screen after I click OK.)
