DOSBox 0.73 not working in HX (DOSX)

Does the new DOSBOX 0.73 run with HX DOS? How?
I have tried and fail :-(

EDIT by rr: changed subject from "DOSBOX 0.73"

No, only up to version 0.72 works currently. HX's SHELL32.DLL is missing SHGetSpecialFolderPathA.

Please submit a more detailed bug report next time!

I added this export, but v0.73 still doesn't run. Most likely this is due to the "status" console window which is new to v0.73 and probably confuses hx. If there's an option to avoid this window being opened it might work...

To turn off console I think it's "dosbox -noconsole"

I'd like to test the new HX. Please upload it to your home page or send it by e-mail.

Done. There's also the source for download, but it needs a modified Wlink and JWasm v1.96 (OTOH, a lot of tools are no longer needed: VALX, DM OPTLINK, MS Link16, PoLink, PoRC, MS Lib, PoLib ).

btw, I tried rCX's hint and it did indeed help with DosBox v0.73. Thanks!

[edit]
there's even a small improvement in v0.73: tool hxldr32 works flawlessly in this version. Previously it did "hang".

If anybody has the urge to recompile DOSBox (I don't), they can read the following link (very informative):
