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.

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
