Windows 95/98 does not implement the Unicode (or wide character) version of most functions. With few exceptions, these functions are implemented as stubs that simply return an error value. See

Simple question, simple answer: it isn't. All Win32 API functions which use Unicode strings (i.e. all the ones with W on the end) are just stubs which do nothing at all, so any Unicode-only process will not run properly (if at all) under Win9x.
