You could use Win32s, which Microsoft no longer supports.  VC4.1 was the last version of VC to include Win32s.  Basically, you have to restrict yourself to a common subset of functions between the Win32 api and the Win32s api in order to have a program that would run on both platforms.

Possibly, you could look into Borland's compiler.  They have better support for Win3.x now.  :)

Look up "win32s" in VC's help.  Microsoft has taken out
references to it in versions after 4.2, so I don't have
access to it.  I think all you have to do when compiling is
define WIN32S or something like that.  On the client, you'll
need to install Win32s.  The MSVC 4.0 cd has an option for
installing Win32s on a machine.
