Thank you, Derek.

This is solve the problem. Windows version could be 4.0. It can be also 
used as linker switch /SU:windows:5.0 (or 4.0)

There is a note on SUBSYSTEM directive 
(, said "Use 4.0 
when developing Windows XP applications." But I never thought it could 
be related to this issue. Actually I still have no idea what this 
directive/switch do.
