Macro _WIN32_WINNT value for Windows PE 2.0 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am building a software that needs to be run on Windows PE 2.0. What should I define _WIN32_WINNT as? The MSDN page http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa383745.aspx is not mentioning Windows PE 2.0.

     

    Of the "regular" OS, the minumum requirement I need is that the software should run on Windows 2000. I am not sure Windows PE 2.0 will shoulder with Windows 2000 or XP or Vista. (I think its Vista but not sure).

     

    In short I need the software to run on Windows PE 2.0 and Windows 2000/XP/Vista. And my confusion is where this Windows PE 2.0 fits into the Windows versions hierarchy. If its equal  to or above Windows 2000 I will be fine I think.

     

    If you know

    What should I define _WIN32_WINNT as for my situation

    Or

    Where Windows PE 2.0 fits into the versions of Windows, please help.

     

    Thank you for your time,

    Kannan

    The lowest version of Windows PE(windows PE 1.0) is build from the first version of windows XP professinal(use the same kernal), the latest version of windows PE(windows PE 2.0) is build from windows vista, so to the quesion:

    Where Windows PE 2.0 fits into the versions of Windows

    I think the answer is Windows Vista.
