Missing imports from the emulated DLLs - HX-DOS extender (DOSX)

Hi,
I am using HXRT217 package and have used HXRT216 as well.

I would like to know the possible solutions for the "Missing import"
problem specific to the ported DLLs emulating the Win32 DLLs'
functionality.

I have tried the suggested DPMILDR=128 setting. But, no luck - programs
finally panic :-(

I am using the HX-DOS support on the DosBox emulator on windows.

Please let me know if there are any versions of the DLLs(D*.DLL) which
have the missing implementations or if there are any other alternatives
to overcome the problem metioned.

Many Thanks,
Raghavan

No other versions that I'm aware of. What app(s) are you trying to run? What compiler was used? Can you recompile that app with a (more) compatible compiler? Not everything works, but it's a bloomin' miracle anything does, and we have Japheth to thank for that.

Probably no, because v2.17 is the most current one.

However if you get error messages not from HX DLLs but from secondary called Windows DLLs you can try to use their different versions or variants from ReactOS.

Have you ever tried this?

Because, AFAIK, it's not a real option - those dlls are "unusable" outside of ReactOS.

It just got less bad in ReactOS 0.3.14 :-)

http://www.reactos.org/en/index.html (no 0.3.15 yet)

Anyone tested WHINE ??? It's MSVCRT.DLL and other DLL's are IIRC empty (but I've never seen the thing working either).

Oxford Oberon 2.9.2 under HX 2.17 w/ MSVCRT.DLL from ReactOS

I grabbed the (40 MB) live CD .ZIP download (150 MB unpacked). I mounted it under PuppyLinux and copied MSVCRT.DLL to my HX directory (for use on FreeDOS 1.1). I made sure to hide the old proprietary MS one. (BTW, ReactOS srcs .ZIP is 72 MB but about 260 MB unpacked. I'm not sure how easy it would be to actually build this bothersome clone .DLL (presumably uses CMake and MinGW), but /lib/sdk/crt/ doesn't honestly look too big, comparatively. Though I can't pretend to have the motivation to try right now. Anyways, I blindly assume it's under LGPL or similar.)

Granted, I didn't heavily test, only tried Oxford Oberon 2.9.2, which was compiled by MingW. Hence it does by default need MSVCRT.DLL and has relocs stripped, so I had to set HDPMI=32 and DPMILDR=136 (128 + 8) for separate address space and ignore unsupported (but unneeded) imports. Then it seems to actually work! So that's pretty good. Maybe I'm misunderstanding the settings somewhat, but that's the only way I could get it working.

:-) (7-ZIP should do it too, just not very convenient)

Really??? Do you have the same MSVCRT.DLL as me ?

7za on Linux didn't work, but I didn't fool with it beyond that.

Yes, and md5sum matches too. Like I said, DPMILDR=8 didn't work, nor did =128, only =136. So try again with that.
