No. unicows.dll is a closed-source library which is not normally part
of a Woe32 installation. You cannot distribute unicows.dll with the
binaries of a GPLed program - this would be a violation of the GPL and of
the Microsoft EULA. You can distribute the binaries without including
unicows.dll, but this will cause problems for users that don't have this
library on their system. Therefore I wouldn't recommend it.

Anyway, Windows 95/98/ME is history. Not a platform worth caring about any
