Okay, I've done some research into the version.dll problem, and here's
what I've found:
MS's GetFileVersionInfoSize() sets the 2nd parameter to 0 if it is non-null.
In our case, something like this would do:
if ( handle ) *handle = 0;
of this variable, SDK says:
Pointer to a variable that the function sets to zero.
Also, later in the function we have this:
if ( handle ) *handle = offset;
Again, SDK seems to indicate that if handle is non-null, we always set
it's contents to 0.
when called for "comctl32.dll" on Windows XP SP1, MS's version of this
function returns a value of 1788, whereas ours is only finding 892.
I believe these issues ( and particularly the last one ) are
contributory to certain versions of winzip not working in reactos, yet.
