The sizeof(PRINTDLG) will give 66 if you modify the Win32 headers to make
the PRINTDLG structure
packed. I did this by changing the line of Windows32/Structures.h
} PRINTDLG, *LPPRINTDLG;
typedef struct tagPD PRINTDLG, *LPPRINTDLG;
Where I had earlier defined PACKED to be __attribute__((packed)) in
Perhaps this will fix the problem?
