It's currently at:

although MS seem to change most of their links every week ;)

I don't think you need the Platform SDK for VC++ 6.0; I don't know about 
5.0.  If you do need it, then it's probably just the "Core SDK" 
component that you need.  You also need IE 5.0 or later to be able to 
use most of their download sites!

I've never seen that using VC++ 6.0.

HRESULT is declared thus:

    typedef LONG HRESULT;

in my <COMMCTRL.h>.  Do you have that header file (mine's in C:\Program 
Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VC98\Include; yours will be somewhere 
slightly different but similar if you have it)?  Does it contain that 
declaration?  If you're missing the header or the declaration in it, 
then perhaps you do need the Platform SDK...

I'll second that request.

I was recently trying to build the latest (CVS) httpd-2.0 on Win32 
(probably to look at the same thing that Geoff's trying to look at!), 
but couldn't because all the extra *.mak files etc that are in the but not the httpd-2.0.48.tar.gz are not on 
CVS (or at least not where I could find them).
