I would imagine that avoiding HX being flagged / deleted would be important, but I do also understand that it's more of their problem than yours. (One file on VirusTotal reported "VIRUS_UNKNOWN", heh, it "knows" it's a virus but doesn't know what or why or how??)

I also wonder at why they all have the same error. Do they share databases or test cases? They must. I hate this so badly, but whatever, unless "we" (eh?) manually work around it and/or heavily nag the antivirus people, what can we do? :-(

I've never really used it, dunno. DOS386 claims it doesn't work (well, if at all) under FreeDOS. I don't know what specifically you mean here (DOS4GW.EXE proper? OpenWatcom malloc?). But I do know that dumb ol' paq8o8z reportedly used a lot more MBs of RAM with OW builds than DJGPP, presumably due to differing malloc implementation, page size rounding, or whatever.
