I have PDFs of C 4.0 and C 5.0, both of which were included in a load of "Windows 1" stuff I had which included the Platform SDK manuals. If you want them, contact me off-list.

    I don't know if I hung onto the MSC 6.0 manuals, but am looking at what
    amounts to a sizeable portion of a bookshelf that deals with 7.0.
    That's a lot of paper.  Just the "Comprehensive Index and Errors" book
    looks to be somewhere around 400-500 pages.
    I don't believe that MSC was part of MSDN back then.  At least I don't
    recall seeing it on my CD collection, although ISTR that there were
    services packs for it there.
