I don't advise this path either, but in the interest of simply answering the

MSVCRT at least imports all four Create{File,Directory}[AW] API calls.  But
to get the runtime to use the ...W forms one must call the _w... functions
instead of the standard ones, e.g. _wopen instead of open.

MSVCRT never implicitly converts between MBS and WCS representations, and it
certainly does not automatically implement the "\\?\" hack.
