QuestionHow to make an app that runs on Windows 95, 98, ME, NT, 2000 and XP Pin

I am trying to develope an application that runs on Windows 95, 98, ME, NT, 2000 and XP. I develope on a nice new/fast PC running Windows XP. After getting most problems worked out on the desktop I started testing on other version of Windows. Boy was I surprized how the same executable would run differently on different version of Windows.

Here are some examples: I have a dialog box that has a property sheet with 3 property pages. On the pages there are buttons that call up a CColorDialog. It works fine on XP, but hangs the machine on ME. For this case I re-designed the dialog to be stand alone property sheet with the same 3 property pages. This approach works on XP and ME, still need to try on others.

Another example is the CRectTracker. On XP the code uses a CRectTracker and the handles and cursor change when the tracker is displayed. On ME the cursor disapears when the CRectTracker::Track function is called.

I am quickly comming to the conclusion that to have an application that runs on 32 bit windows, it cannot be any more complicated that a list box and a few buttons.Frown | :( Does anybody from Microsoft read these pages?

So my question is how do you develope an app for all these version of windows? Do you develope on 95 (the worst one) and once you have it working there, there is a good chance it will work on the others? Do I need to build the exe on a PC running each of the different versions? Is building the exe on XP and delivering it to a customer running 95 an approach that will work?I don't even have access to some of these versions. Does anybody have any ideas?

Thanks for any ideas
