Depends on compilation. Programs that are in PE (Win32) format (and don't use DPMI features) should run fine, programs written for DPMI won't. You've to compile the program into a normal PE (Win32) binary and then make sure it's compatible with HX if you want to provide one file for DOS and Windows 64 bit.
