 I've just found out that that on Windows internal implementation of python35.dll in posixmodule.c
uses winapi function GetFinalPathNameByHandleW

By the way from MSDN:

Minimum supported client
  Windows Vista [desktop apps only]

Minimum supported server
  Windows Server 2008 [desktop apps only]

Does it mean, that Python-3.5 doesn't support any windows versions prior "Windows Vista" and "Windows Server 2008" ?
