 Thanks a lot in advance for trying to solve my problem.

 I am trying to internationalize and application i have. I have a common source base for Win NT/2K/XP and Win 95/98/ME. My application compiles fine on NT/XP/2k. But has problems compiling on 9X. I have downloaded the MSLU layer from microsoft. I have also installed the Platform SDK dated November 2001. I did all this as per MSDN. I am missing the file "unicows.lib" which is supposed to be located in the \Microsoft Platform SDK\Lib directory after i install platform sdk. However even if i do a complete install of Platform SDK, i do not get this lib.
 Can somebody tell me where i can find this elusive unicows.lib?

Thanks and Regards,

I've just been looking for this too! Don't worry, you're not going mad.

The way I've found it is to install Visual Studio .NET and you'll find it in the lib folder (e.g. "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\Vc7\PlatformSDK\Lib" ).

Otehrwise you need the "latest platform sdk"....... should be available from:
