Windows Firewall Backward Compatibility

I want to use firewall api in my XP to open certain ports. Would it work 
also in Windows Vista and in Windows 7?
In other words do newer Windows firewalls api support backward 
compatibility?
Regards
James

They practically always do.  It's extremely rare for Microsoft to 
disable previously supported API.

But the best way to know for sure is just to try it.

AFAIK this kind of info is provided in the documentation.

Have you checked http://msdn.microsoft.com/library ? I assume the API you 
are using is http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa366452(VS.85).aspx...

You should ask this in a FW NG like comp.security.firewalls.

Windows Mobile 6.0 and Outlook 2003 Not Syncing Appointments

However, I can't get Outlook 2003 to synch with it. I have created an appointment in my PDA and in my Outlook calendar. When I synch the devices, it will not transfer the calendar data between them. I have noticed that it doesn't appear to check my password when I enter the credentials into my Exchange settings on WM6. However, if I enter bad server info, it will complain. Is this an Outlook 2003 issue, a WM6...

CreateNewChild child window's caption disappears after losing focus
Hello all, I'm having a strange issue. I'm creating a child window and doing an initial SetWindowTextA on it's creation. There can be only one instance of this window.

Why parent/child windows compete for focus?
Hi, friend, I created a document template in InitInstance() with CRichEditDoc/CMyFrameWnd/CRichtEditView. In FileNew(), I created an MDIChildFrame first, and then created a new document. In CMyFrameWnd::OnCreate(), I set MDIChildFrame window as CMyFrameWnd's parent. However, each time the RichEdit View gets focus, the title/menu bar of its parent (i.e., MDIChildFrame) losts focus, and vise versa. This is unacceptable since a user does not want to click menu twice (first click to make parent menu get focus and second click to do operation) while editting text. (I checked MS Wor...

Compatibility pack for Office 2008

Yes, it has a "Converter" available from www.microsoft.com/mac as a free download. The converter enables you to both read and save the new formats. The current version is a Beta version: we are waiting for the 'real' one to appear. We expect that will be some time after the service release for Office 2008 appears, on March 11th.

Why does saving as XLSM trigger Compatibility Checker?
If I save as XLSX, Excel 2007 knows not to bother with the compatibility checker, because I'm not saving in an old format. But when I try to save my files with macros in the new formats that support macros, like XLSM or XLTM, it yaps to me about compatibility errors (just minor formatting referring to the cells that use the new pallette). I don't care about backward compatibility for this particular file as I'm the only one who will use it. Since I'm not saving in an older format, why does it pester me with this every time I try to save? Is there any way to stop this ju...
