Actually, no. We should for Windows 10 to use the Universal CRT, even 
though it's possible to use it in Vista.

This documentation is not very clear

It lists what DLL to use and from what version of Windows 10. But then 
it's possible to use the Universal CRT on Win8 and Win7.


UNICODE may not be needed for non winstore versions, I will move it in 
my local patch.
