Check a Win9x version of shell32.dll; also check shdocvw.dll (ordinal 118) 
and shdocvw401.dll. One of them exports the function by name on some Win9x 
version. The correct name is "ShellDDEInit". I'm not sure where the true 
implementation is located, but using ordinal 118 from shdocvw.dll works 
beautifully on every windows version which has that DLL. I suspect however 
that it is only a redirect to the true implementation which may be inside 
shell32.dll or somewhere else. *shrug*

I have no idea though where the connection to the system tray is (I didn't 
follow the thread from the beginning). Granted, a few items such as the 
"open network connections" menu entry in the context menu of the DUN icon 
depend on the presence of a DDE server, but the system tray itself works 
fine without it.
