Wine does not use the WINVER, or other associated version defines when
building a project - it automatically uses the latest Windows version
(although the API exposed may be incomplete due to missing functions).
Programatically, you can use GetVersionEx
[http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms724451.aspx] to determine
the version of Windows at runtime in your program, although Microsoft
recommend using VerifyVersionInfo (see
[http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms725491(VS.85).aspx] for an
example of its usage).
To change the version in Wine you can use winecfg (the 'Windows
Version' property on the 'Applications' tab).
