Hi!

Found at http://gunkies.org/wiki/Win32s

"Win32s was an addon developed by Microsoft to allow people to
quickly start writing Win32 programs. At the time the big problem
was that all of the Windows users were using Windows 3.1  and at
the time there was no shipping 'production' version of Windows NT,
and there was no 'consumer' Win32 operating system at the time.

(...)as many as possible Win32 calls are then thunked into the
appropriate Win16 calls. (...)"

My question is:
What is your purpose "to make xblite run on win32s"?

Bye! Guy

to make win32s programs using win32s and xblite

xblite makes win32s apps just fine
the only thing I could not get it to do is run under win32s

after examining the xblite files and
after looking at the 16bit files in the xblite package "from quick C?"

I figured who ever made it knows somthing of windows 3.1

and that it might have run under win32s at one time
or perhaps could be made to do so

I'm a windows 3.1 programmer
