 Replying to [comment:23 tcourtney]:
> I have a question about this issue and the proposed solution. We
 compile our software on Windows 7 but want the binaries to be compatible
 for all versions of Windows. It seems that any solution for this issue
 that relies on #ifdef, #define to determine the OS properties is only
 valid for the OS that the software was compiled on. I don't see how a
 solution based on static, compile time #ifdef logic could support both
 GetTickCount for XP and GetTickCount64 for Windows 7 using the same
 binary. This #ifdef fix only makes it possible to compile the code on XP
 or Windows7. But that doesn't fix the issue for my company because we
 need to release the same binary for XP and Windows 7.

 And you propose ...
