When I run any program compiled through dig on my Win95B machine, I get an
error that says something about failing to register
USER32.DLL:TrackMouseEvent.

dig works fine on my Win98SE machine, what could be the problem?

IIRC, TrackMouseEvent was taken from the COMCTL32.dll function
_TrackMouseEvent sometime in the Win32 lifecycle around when Win98 was born.
Hence, it is not found in old systems.

If DIG wants to be truly portable, it should probably to a
LoadLibrary/GetProcAddress here, rather than implicitly linking
