If you look at the MSVCRT source, they are basically just wrappers around the Win32 functions used in tif_win32.c anyhow. I would suggest that you take a look yourself at tif_win32.c. I think that tif_win32.c might also be more 64-bit friendly. If we have 4GB issues, they will likely lie more with the fact that t_sizet is defined as int32 instead of uint32.

Right. Even though NTFS can support huge files, most 32-bit Windows file access APIs are limited to supporting 2GB due to use of 32-bit signed offsets. Success can be achieved by using the POSIX-style underscore APIs (_read, _write, etc.).
