I guess that we could do runtime detection of the windows version (or
availability of these functions) and try the non wide character versions
on old windows.

Another solution, which wouldn't need runtime detection, would be to
fallback automatically to the non wide char version if the wide char
version fails. This would be easier to implement i guess. Anyone have
objections ?
