Compiling aspell in vs.NET 2003

I have recently attempted to compile the open source spell checker in vs.NET 2003 for my third year project at uni, but i keep getting an error in the vs library class "WinBase.h" it keeps giving me the following errors:
c:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\Vc7\PlatformSDK\Include\WinBase.h(3919): error C2440: 'initializing' : cannot convert from 'int (__cdecl *)(void)' to 'BOOL'.
and also it does not identify PHANDLE as a type:
c:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\Vc7\PlatformSDK\Include\WinBase.h(9462): error C2061: syntax error : identifier 'PHANDLE'.
If anyone can give me any information on how to go about sorting this out it would be much appreciated. Otherwise i think im gonna have to install linux and try using that.
