Hi,

Prior to installing VS2008, I used to have VS2005, the latest Vista SDK
and the Vista DDK. In Feb 08 I removed VS2005 and installed VS2008.

The confusion now, is that VS2008 appears to have headers from the Win
SDK and also the Win DDK, so I've ended up with very confusing "near
duplicates" of headers and libs.

The easy solution appears to be "uninstall all Windows SDKs and DDKs",
but I would like to be able to still develop outside VS2008 and also
make sure I have the low-level docs from the SDKs. What's the correct
path to ensure I only have the latest headers, libs, docs.
