OLE32.DLL with CoInitializeEx()

I have a 32-bit Windows EXE file making a call to CoInitializeEx().

The MSDN documentation says:
"QuickInfo
  Windows NT: Use version 4.0 or later.
  Windows: Use Windows 95 or later. Available as a redistributable for Windows 95.
  Windows CE: Use version 2.0 or later.
  Header: Declared in objbase.h.
  Import Library: Included as a resource in ole32.dll."

I have found that it is looking for a newer OLE32.DLL than is on my Windows 95 installation, but I cannot find what
redistributable I need.

Can anyone point me in the proper direction?

Thanks,

If that doesn't work, try this:

       Go to the link below or Microsoft's maze of a Web Site and download the OLE32 update patch--  This will ensure you are
       running the latest OLE drivers.  Since the release of Win95, MS has released various patches and updates.  You can read
       about them at these locations.  they are free.  Installing these patches should solve your problem.
