Currently the NMake and CMake Windows builds set the target OS version as Windows 2000 via the defines NTDDI_VERSION and _WIN32_WINNT.

I would like to move these to at least XP, if not Vista.

Changing these defines doesn't immediately prevent a current build running on Win2K but does allow us, in the future, to use newer Windows API functions that aren't present on Win2K, and if\when we do so, then that build won't run on Win2K.


+1 for moving it to XP (1.12 and 1.99 still run on XP for now despite the warning during installation).
