SUMMARY

Many applications written for Windows use variations of C Run-time functions which specifically use NEAR or FAR pointers. Applications written for Windows NT use the flat memory model, therefore, these function variations are not supported. When porting from Windows to Windows NT, calls to these functions will need to be modified.

MORE INFORMATION

The following is a list of macros that make the porting of applications to Microsoft Windows NT easier:
