I assume this has been reviewed: 

This appears to be a function that is supported in Kernel32.dll for Windows 8 and later. 
(Notice that the older CreateFile is defined for Windows XP and later.)  CreateFile2 only
handles Unicode (WSTR) FileName strings, which makes sense if this is intended for use on
the Universal Windows Platform (UWP).

Perhaps the appropriate action with this detected platform integration failure is to create
a JIRA issue on this and then decide separately whether it is a release blocker or not.  It
certainly strikes me as something that needs to be hunted down at some point.
I believe this is consistent with 
<> looking beyond the checklist
section (e.g., the Bugs subsection).

Just tested dftest on windows7 and windows10. Zip test cases works without

A little remark, we do not make a binary release, so a runtime problem is
(even though something we shall investigate) in general not within the
scope of
the release. A compile error would be within the scope.
