CWSDPMI is merely a generic DPMI server, a DOS extender...
I use QDPMI that comes with QEMM97.

There is no CWSDPMI header, rather there is a "Go32v2" header...
This stub checks for the presence of any DPMI and installs CWSDPMI if

The compiler should leave the raw object in the source/build

Linkers suck. =( 
I hate them.

See what you can do with the watcom linker, or get a linker over the net
and h4x0r it... You'll be doing the world a great service if you do it
