ctl3d.dll/ctl3dv2.dll/ctl3d32.dll provide a "3d look" for applications
written for pre-Windows95 versions. The first two are 16-bit dlls,
the latter one is 32-bit (as its name implies).

I believe that a completely stubbed implementation will work just fine.

If you need any assistance on writing a stub dll, just ask. Good luck.
