The preliminary Win32 SDK contained the compiler tools, while the retail Win32 SDK does not. In addition, the preliminary Win32 DDK was available separately, while the retail DDK is bundled with the retail SDK.

The Win32 SDK has a separate "Win32s Programmer's Reference," while VC++ has the same chapters as part of the "Programming Techniques" manual.

There are tools whose names have changed and tools that are no longer needed. The SDK linker is LINK32, the VC++ linker is LINK. The SDK librarian is LIB32, the VC++ librarian is LIB. CVTRES existed in the SDK to convert the .RES file produced by RC so that it could be used by the linker, while VC++ has this functionality built into its linker. These changes may affect your makefiles.

For more information on switching from the Win32 SDK to 32-bit VC++, see the VC++ file MIGRATE.HLP.
