The Microsoft Example did a memset on the structure before calling void GetVersionEx().
Setting it to a version that needs the Global\ is only a safeguard against a failing 
call. I guess the call cannot fail, and thus setting it before is not really needed.

Yes, if the void call does not fail to work.
