Hello all,

first of all congratulation to all the wine stuff for the great job.

I was trying to run some old 16 bit executables using wine (darwine) for mac, but from what i understand darwine is still not able to execute those exe.

On Linux, doing 


works fine,

under mac, typing the same command (but using darwine) i get
fixme:module:wine_load_dos_exe DOS executables not supported on this platform
winevdm: can't exec 'Z:\Users\spectrum\bcc\rtm.exe': invalid program file 

i was wandering if this feature would be implemented in the future, and if exist some alternative. I think i cannot use dosbox, since i need to invoke "wine tasm.exe" from some gnu makefiles.

Many thanks
