In "Windows Kits\8.0\Include\um\winbase.h", there is this check: 


It controls whether the CopyContext function is pulled in for desktop apps. The NTDDI_WIN7SP1 definition is no where to be found in the SDK.  It seems to be missing from "Windows Kits\8.0\Include\shared\sdkddkver.h".  Adding it as:

#define NTDDI_WIN7SP1                       0x06010100

solved a problem I was having with my own definition of CopyContext in a header generated from IDL.  Please fix this!  

Also update http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa383745(v=vs.85).aspx.  This page also needs some work in the "Windows 7 with SP1" note regarding VS2012: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/hh134234(v=VS.85).aspx.
