c++.dos.32-bits - x32 and xp?

Anyone else?

Building -ms or the default win32 works (as does using the -ms 16bit .exes
as the stub, boot back to MS-DOS and the stub runs, nifty).

Seems that the dosextender is incompatible with WinXP. Not much you can do :-( - Heinz

Confirmed it's not just me?

Are there alternatives? I know there's lots of obvious candidates, but
anyone can vouch for any?
One in particular I didn't like the looks of -- one that supports PE images
in DOS..it had a PE loader written in assembly that looked buggy..I don't
want to trust such wide swaths of code needlessly written in assembly
anyway...I could probably write my own generic DOS stub that's a PE loader
plus "libc"...

It does work in both NT4 (I think I've done that) and Win2000 (I'm not sure
I've tried)?
Anyone tried to report it to Microsoft?
