Try it and see if it works; the source was originally designed to work under anything from '95 upwards. Course, they may be targeting a development platform that no longer supports '9x because it's so old.

The text support in NT is much better than 9x, so it's better to use that.

Alternatively, it may be better to use one of the DOS extenders that supports Win32 APIs including the console, than bother using 9x..
