 Can't compile MTPad from WTL samples - retry post

I previously posted this message thru the MS site and there were some
wacky formatting problems, sorry. Here is the correct post:

Hello All,

I recently downloaded the PSDK with WTL. I'm using NT Server 4.0 SP5,
VC++ 6.0

The AttachMenu function of the CCommandBarCtrlImpl class is throwing
an ATLASSERT as follows:

// Add buttons for each menu item
if(m_hMenu != NULL)
        int nItems = ::GetMenuItemCount(m_hMenu);

        T* pT = static_cast<T*>(this);
        pT;     // avoid level 4 warning
        TCHAR szString[pT->_nMaxMenuItemTextLength];
        for(int i = 0; i < nItems; i++)
                CMenuItemInfo mii;
                mii.fMask = MIIM_TYPE | MIIM_STATE | MIIM_SUBMENU;
                mii.fType = MFT_STRING;
                mii.dwTypeData = szString;
                mii.cch = pT->_nMaxMenuItemTextLength;
                bRet = ::GetMenuItemInfo(m_hMenu, i, TRUE, &mii);
                // following added by me
                DWORD dwErr = 0;
                        dwErr = ::GetLastError();
                // end additions
                ATLASSERT(bRet); // this is the         culprit

GetLastError returns 87 - The parameter is incorrect. (How helpful)

The m_hMenu parameter appears to be a valid handle -
GetMenuItemCount(m_hMenu) returns the proper number (4). Anyone have
any ideas?

Any help would be greatly apppreciated

Hi James,

I posted this before, perhaps you missed it.

If you're not running your development environment on Win2000, then you'll
need to either comment the following lines out or change their values in the
StdAtl.h file of the MTPad example:

#define WINVER 0x0500
#define _WIN32_WINNT 0x0500
#define _WIN32_IE 0x0501
