This is still the best bet, or maybe VC++ 2010.  I should have told you not to try Windows 8 SDK or VC++ 2012.
 
system - the SDK for Windows 8 does not support XP.  When I execute
the SetEnv.cmd file, it does not find any C compiler nor the link executable.
I then tried to get my .rc file to work with ResEdit, but there is a problem
with the DateTimePicker in that I can define the attribute of ShortDateCenturyFormat
with it, but then it will not reload the .rc file - it flags that identifier as
being undeclared.  I am about to try to install the Visual C++ 2010 Express
version 

Well, I just looked and VC++ 2010 is probably what you need.  The Windows SDKs used to include a linker, but 7.1 does not anymore.

VC++ 2010 should work fine.

The Resedit problem can be fixed by making sure the right includes are done.  I'll have to look up what is needed.
