Yes, I said "type mismatch" to clarify the error. It's not possible to 
fit a 64-bit pointer value into a static 32-bit DWORD at "load time" 
(probably means relocation time). The types aren't compatible.

No, in the case of Winelib apps, every Wine definition should match the 
Windows definition exactly. And here, DWORD_PTR would be 64-bit and 
DWORD would be 32-bit, so it's not exactly a perfect match.

But I'm not proposing any particular solution, I just said what's wrong.
