Windows API (http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en-us/winprog/winprog/windows_api_start_page.asp) | Welcome to the SDK Update Site (http://www.microsoft.com/msdownload/platformsdk/sdkupdate/)

I see...I think I'm going to need a web spider for this one...

Why make things difficult?

The SDK is certainly worth the cost of shipping for a CD:
All reference collections are well organized, fully indexed, and easy to search with the included "Microsoft Document Explorer" -- much faster than dealing with MSDN Library online.

Besides, obtaining a snapshot of a specific reference from that site via some spidering/download application is probably not going to work out, because of their server redirection into an asp/xml menu template (or whatever it is).

I agree ... I've got it ( even though I don't use MSVC ) ... So much better than using the online version, I have it start up everytime I boot my compiler.

If you use Dev-C++ there is a package you can download, it's not as big as the MSDN doc one but it's a good basic win32 api reference.
