      Bug description ---> java.exe does not work under Windows 95 with a message
      "Error loading: jvm.dll".

      It seems what the reason of failure is kernel's InterlockedCompareExchange function,
      which is used by jvm.dll (both hotspot\jvm.dll and server\jvm.dll) and which is not supported in Windows 95.

      MSDN says:
      InterlockedCompareExchange:
      ...
      Requirements
        Windows NT/2000: Requires Windows NT 4.0 or later.
        Windows 95/98: Requires Windows 98 or later.


      This bug occurs in merlin-beta, build 57, 58, 59.
