[vlc-devel] win95/98/me problems with utf8 wrappers

I'm having serious problems running vlc-0.8.5-testx on my win98 (no SP) machine.
Every attempt to access local files failes, except module loading.
The problem includes reading/writing the configuration files/directory.
Playing a file from the internet (http or mms access) works fine.

IMO the utf8-wrapper functions (CreateDirectoryW and wfopen) are the cause of these errors,
because they are not implemented in those windows versions.

Can someone confirm this misbehaviour?

The log entries are attached.

Best regards, Daniel
