and btw, the build finishes too quick

Here are the errors...
 typedef HRESULT WINAPI (*SetProcessDpiAwarenessFunctionPointer) (int
    C2059 sqPlatformSpecific-Win32.c:80 syntax error: '('
    E0651 a calling convention may not be followed by a nested declarator.

The following change reduces build errors to 1...
  typedef HRESULT (*SetProcessDpiAwarenessFunctionPointer) (int awareness);

but I'm not sure of the implications.

Could be "the parenthesis around the function name" [2]
Or "there's already a C standard function [of that name]" [3]
The Microsoft definition returns a BOOL [4].

  sqInt ioSetCursorARGB(sqInt cursorBitsIndex, sqInt extentX, sqInt
extentY, sqInt offsetX, sqInt offsetY)
    C2371 'ioSetCursorARGB': redefinition; different basic types

where sqInt is "long long".
but the function declaration is
  int ioSetCursorARGB(sqInt bitsIndex, sqInt w, sqInt h, sqInt x, sqInt y);

After modifying that function declaration to return 'sqInt',
"Cmake > Build all" runs much longer

and ends up with 4 link errors (and 6600 warnings)
Pharo.exe LNK1120 - 1 unresolved external
Pharow.exe LNK1120 - 1unresolved external
sqMain.c.obj LNK2019 - unresolved external symbol _imp_osvm_main
referenced in function main
sqWin32Main.c.obj LNK2019 - unresolved external symbol _imp_osvm_main
referenced in function WinMain

I do see osvm_main is defined here...

but I'm stuck, I don't understand why its looking for "_imp_osvm_main"

I'd be glad if anyone can advise on this, and the two errors above.

cheers -ben
