Thank you Seo,

That fixed the compile, but the link still failed (on GetMemoryDC) because
HDC is also defined differently in a console app vs an MFC app. So to fix
both problems I added #define VC_EXTRALEAN and #include "afxwin.h" to the
top of my console app and this worked. Thank you for the clue.
