A very delayed update here.

Turns out this was very true. On 2000 CLSID_WbemLocator requires a real SysAllocString when calling ExecQuery, CLSID_WbemAdministrativeLocator accepts a plain wide string. XP is happy with the wide string hack for both interfaces.

Neither CoInitializeSecurity nor CoSetProxyBlanket exist on 95RTM but that does not explain why 2000 delay loads CoInitializeSecurity.

I can also confirm that CoSetProxyBlanket on the svc interface can be used instead of CoInitializeSecurity, even on 2000 (Not that it matters in NSIS).
