Post your version of that file. Mine doesn't have INT64 on line 17. Or maybe you should use a different compiler, such as free Microsoft VC++ 2008 Express.

uploading header files is useless without the libraries that go along with them. If they were not part of your compiler when you installed it then either (1) your compiler doesn't support them, or (2) download the entire Windows Platform SDK. You can also order it on DVD. This is a very large download and may take a lot of time over slow modem or outside USA.

Better approach is to ditch that compiler and download VC++ 2008 Express.
