Thanks, but I'm not sure if I understand you correctly. Because a normal DJGPP DOS binary is also supposed to run both in DOS and in Windows NTVDM. The purpose of the DJGPP sample supplied with HX is just to change the memory model from "flat" to "zero-based flat". The advantage then is that a function in a PE dll can be called without tricks.

MS-DOS forever!
