I have "Windows Server 2003 SP1 Platform SDK" installed:
"Date Published: 5/2/2005", so it's about as old as MSVS 2005.
It doesn't contain stdint.h. Or at least I can't find it anywhere...

I suspect that you have newer "Windows SDK for Windows 7 and .NET Framework 4":

AFAIK Platform SDK is only necessary for MSVS 2005/2008/2010 Express Edition;
Pro/Premium/Ultimate editions didn't require it so far.
