This needs some testing, sure. However, I'm fairly confident that
Microsoft has fixed/is going to fix whatever issues arise - they
want the platform SDK to be usable with a "recent" compiler (not
necessarily the latest one). There was a recent update to the platform
SDK (which now comes with both Itanium and AMD64 compilers), so
I'm (still) optimistic.
