THIS is why we can't have nice code!

Honestly, it has been my biggest complaint with MSFT since they went 32bit with C++ and refused to support 16bit causing me to write a thunking layer, and ultimately rewrite the code in ANOTHER LANGUAGE.

This concept that you never rebuild an old application to fix an issue is insane. ZERO backwards compatibility. If gcc was built like this, we would still be using punch cards!
