This is pretty easy as long as you've got an LDAP v3 compliant LDAP SDK...

Actually, I'd suggest specifying this in the project via an environment 
variable and documenting this variable.

This is pretty simple too.  Use the attached .def file (similar, but 
different than that for NetWare) and include it in your MSVC++ project.

Except for having an obnoxious IDE (wouldn't it be nice if Microsoft at 
least provided text areas rather than text fields for editing fields 
that tend to be long in real usage?!?), there are a lot of similarities 
between Windows .def stuff and AIX's .exp stuff -- which are 
approximately equally obnoxious.
