Great! I tested it here, with Visual C++ Express beta 2, and it works!

Will the executable also work on other comuters? Say Win98.

I am just curious. I mean to remember, that I tried a very similar code not too
long ago. Was this added just recently?

I thought, I had read release notes as carefully as possible, and did not see
this mentioned. Is it mentioned in the documentation or in the release notes?
Where can I find it there?

I certainly would not complain, when it is not mentioned in the documentation. I
am aware, that I am using a free beta version of the compiler (and I even read
the EULA from start to end).

Regards and thanks,
