Double Oh!

That is indeed a bug, the version check should be for 0x580, I'll change
that now.

However, I'm not able to reproduce the access violations?

This is strange: originally these tests were all failing with an internal
error in the linker. I'm not sure why they've started building now, I also
encountered numerous internal compiler errors when building from the IDE
(turning off precompiled headers seems to do the trick though).

Can you see if the change to the version check has had any effect?
Otherwise whick test was failing with the access violation: just the
threaded test or all of them?



ps if you have a chance can you build the threaded test with VC6 again to
see if I really have fixed the issues or not? Cheers!
