    I was wondering if MSLU is the only way for a C program made with win32 api to support unicode on 9x

    And I'm getting confused on the differance between wide characters and multibyte characters, does 9x support either one?

    Yes. That's why it's the MS Layer for Unicode. They've got lots of little undocumented tricks that makes its OS integration tight.

    Wide characters are also known as Unicode, so you need MSLU to use them. The only other way you can manipulate those and multi-byte characters in Win9x is by converting them to ANSI (Single byte characters).
