AH, no it belongs here as a reality check upon delusional activities.

| Where exactly does OS programming, development, enhancement and
| evolution end and "shoe-horning" begin?
|
| That discussion rightly belongs in a win-98.advocacy (or
| windows.advocacy) group.
|
| The stability, compatibility and usefullness of using win-2k updates
| on win-98 to address MS06-072 is still the fundamental theme of this
| thread...

| About WinINet
|
| The Windows Internet (WinINet) application programming interface (API)
| enables applications to interact with Gopher, FTP, and HTTP protocols
| to access Internet resources. As standards evolve, these functions
| handle the changes in underlying protocols, enabling them to maintain
| consistent behavior.

|
| Calling WinINet Autoproxy Functions using Dynamic Linking
|
| The three functions mentioned above whose name begins with "Internet"
| reside in "JSProxy.dll", and must be linked to dynamically at runtime.

| SHLWAPI Wrapper Functions
|
| The tables in this document list wrapper functions from Shlwapi.dll
| that provide limited Unicode functionality to Microsoft Windows 95,
| Windows 98, and Windows Millennium Edition (Windows Me).
|
| Note These functions are available through Windows XPService Pack 2
| (SP2) and Windows Server 2003. They might be altered or unavailable in
| subsequent versions of Windows.
|
| Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows Me are referred to here as "native
| ANSI platforms". On native ANSI platforms, these wrapper functions
| convert the Unicode input string parameters to ANSI and call ANSI
| versions of functions in the Forwards To column. For example,
| AppendMenuWrapW calls AppendMenuA, which is the ANSI version of
| AppendMenu. The other functions follow the same pattern. Any strings
| returned by the ANSI function are converted to Unicode and returned to
| the caller. Aside from the exceptions noted in the Remarks column, the
| wrapper function has the same syntax and provides the same
| functionality as the function in the Forwards To column. You should
| refer to that reference page for detailed usage information.
