RE: How to obtain the file length of a file larger th-an 4G in C under NT4.0?

Both APIs support returning 64bit values -- the Ex version makes it a tad
easier because it takes a PLARGE_INTEGER, but yes it's only supported on
Win2K.

Use GetFileSize() for support on all platforms. Note that Win9x does not
support files greater than 4GB in size on any of its supported filesystems.

If I remember correctly, GetFileSizeEx()(this works for >4GB giles) works
only on Win2K. Isn't it so?
