I tried to do something similar for go32v2 but failed.

The trouble is that wlib bombs out with

[7.850] Using util d:\pp16\binw\wlib.exe
Specified COMMAND search directory bad
Too many parameters
Too many parameters
Too many parameters
Microsoft(R) Windows DOS

D>exit

I tried shortening paths (not in zip) but that didn't help

Nasm sometimes also exits (run too quickly in succession, memory problems?) Testing was done under Windows XP.

I uploaded the snapshot anyway for more knowledgable people.

Note that the pp16\dopp16.bat file sets some paths for compiling, and the
pp16\bin\i386-go32v2\pp16.bat should also be checked.

After that it should be running pp16\dopp16.bat, changing to \pp16\demo and running

pp16 fpctris

should do the trick.
