If you compile a win32-program you will have a total virtual memory,
that means that your pointer values don't have anything to do with the
physical ram. A pointer associated to $a0000 actually points to nowhere.
If you really want mode $13 you need to compile for dos, cause then
windows sets up an old-style 8086 environment. Unfortunately the
download page says:
"Sorry, no Dos release yet. The Dos platform is missing a maintainer and
is not of acceptable quality for 2.0."
