constant anywhere so it's probably not defined in the Windows headers. My
question is, how large a buffer should I allocate for the SID? I'm trying to
get the SID for the USERS group.

It's only available in Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 so make sure you
have an updated version of the Platform SDK installed. It's defined in
WinNT.h
