Gah, why didn't I just run under QEMU ?! Sorry, my bad. (Note to self: "DOSBox is not a full emulator, it's only for games." Maybe if I wrote a game that needed int 21h,4B01h ?? :lol2: )

Oh well, you could work around that by not installing if Z:\{rescan, imgmount, mem}.com exists and DOS version reported is 5. Also, at least 0.72 reports "S3 Incorporated. Trio64" for VESA mfgr. string.

(I don't expect you to do that, though. AFAIK, you never fixed the "HXLDR32 loads even if no EMS found, won't work, and won't uninstall" issue.)
