 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,

Don't know much about this but is the file originally located on the SDK cd? if so, have you tried searching the string *.lib on the cd to see if the file is there and if so pasting it into the respective directory may work but don't quote me on this. Its just a suggestion!

Hope you can resolve your problem!

i think you may actually need the unicows.dll instead here:
