Yes, it was MS link. Other MS COFF linkers (WLINK, POLINK) will do the job as well.

MS link runs in DOS with HXRT. But if you don't like that, use WLINK from Open Watcom.

No, that tool doesn't know how to create PE binaries.

No, just the linker was used, the sample is unrelated to MS VCTK2003.

Btw, please note that the DGPJJ sample was tested with v2.03. I was told that for v2.04 the modified startup code won't work. Perhaps, if you tell me what you want to achieve I might be able to help.

MS-DOS forever!
