@MjrWilson Wow! Typical Visual Studio. One of the many reasons I try to avoid MSVC as a compiler. I've had similar issues at work lately, installing an older win api completely ruined 3 versions of visual studio to the point of reinstalling and having to manually clean the registry. Go Microsoft!
Oh well as a MSFT stock owner at least other people like them even if I don't. ;)
Glad you got it fixed. :)
