That's a pity: some applications require AngleArc, Chord, CreateHatchBrush, PolyBezier, PolyPolygon, RoundRect. May you just add "stubs" (aka dummies) for them? Also HX-DOS cannot launch FAR 1.70: it requires DefineDOSDeviceA?

Your nice DOS extender definetly lacks one options: "run program with some unresolved imports". Unresolved imports may be setted on the stub which prints "Unresolved import ****. System halted".
