The Crystal Reports (CR) 9 Developer Runtime Help (Runtime.chm) lists Unicows.dll as a dependency file for the Report Designer Component (RDC) and Crystal Print Engine API.
What is Unicows.dll and where can you find it?
Unicows.dll is a wrapper to provide Unicode support for Windows 9x and ME (Windows NT, 2000, and XP already provide Unicode support).
The Unicows.dll is contained in the RDC 9 merge modules. To obtain the RDC 9 merge modules, please visit our Downloads page.
NOTE: Windows 9.x and ME are not supported platforms for Crystal Reports (CR) 10 and later. Therefore, Unicows.dll is not supported for the Windows 9.x and ME operating systems when using CR 10.
