[SDL] Error message clarification needed

In the Wolf3d community, we have encountered SDL binaries that are not win98-compatible: those built with Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 / 2008 /2010. The error message gererated when attempting to run those EXEs on a Win98 machine is quite obvious and is unrelated to SDL. ("...needs a newer version of Windows")
Code::blocks, Dev-C++, and Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0 do create win98-compatible EXEs.
The EXE in question has been built with Dev-C++ on a Win98 machine and indeed works on my Win98 machine.
I was thinking that this SDL error message may be due to some hardware/driver/other incompatibility with my friend's computer, as it only happens on his Win98 machine. Is that possible?
