HowTo / Notes

fixme:module:wine_load_dos_exe DOS executables not supported on this platform

If Wine is run on modern 64 bit systems, Visual C++ 16 bit DOS tools like resource compiler rc.exe are not supported anymore.

Since x86-64 lacks virtual 8086 mode (16-bit VMs) when the native OS is running in long mode there is no way to get this to work in Wine. Use a system emulator like QEMU or VirtualBox.

An indication are console messages like this:

fixme:module:wine_load_dos_exe DOS executables not supported on this platform
winevdm: can't exec 'foo.exe': invalid program file­
