   I would like to help you and I have a Win95 system around. But I
don't have a Win16 compiler as these things are getting quite rare.
   Would anyone be able to compile this application and make it
available to people on the links, either by emailing it if it is really
small or via some website (I can provide space if necessary).

   I think we have a big problem here which is that 16bit environments
are getting pretty rare. This means that:
 - almost no-one can check the behavior of an application or API in
Windows 3.1
 - even fewer persons can compile test applications when we need to
test a Win16 API on Win32 OSes.

  It would probably help if we had a few volunters willing to act as Win
3.x testers or "compile servers" for Win16 test applications. Or if
someone could provide a Wine developper with a Win16 compiler / Windows
3.x license.
