NTVDMx64 for Win7/8/10 x64 (Announce)

OK, we know to be hypercorrect here... for those who are interested just throw "NTVDMx64" to google and follow the 1st link...

Yes, I tried WineVDM too. It's intended for 16-bit Windows apps and also works for simple DOS 16-bit apps. The power of WineVDM is integration to Windows. It includes a registry "hack" that exploits
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWARE/Microsoft/Windows NT/CurrentVersion/NtVdm64/OTVDM]
reg. key to automatically launch WineVDM whenever you try to run a 16-bit windows app so then it works seamless just open an app window like in 32-bit Windows.

I wish that something similar could be done for DOS apps. And I think it could be possible. When DOS EXE is loaded you got some exception that it wont run on 64-bit windows. So just to hook this exception and launch MSDOS player instead displaying an error...
