[Bf-committers] Win32 API problems on VC11 and Win 8

Hi Blender devs,
i just read some Win32 docs on msdn and found out that GetAnythingLong and
SetAnythingLong Win32 apis are not 64-bit safe.
Microsoft recommends using the Get/Set/AnythingLongPtr to be safe.
Windows 8 in combination with the VC++2012 Runtime seems to react violently
But even without this combination this should be made safe, I think.
I think the Gamengine problems result deeply in the Windowmanager or even in
GHOST_Win32 because of this.
I know VS 2012 is not supported yet, but I think its a good chance to speed
up Blenders performance.
NVidia will bring Cuda 5.5 RC next month and VC2012 Express supports all
features needed to build a fully featured version of Blender including
So it is actually possible to get a working VC2012 build out into the world
with 2.68 or 2.69.
