Windows helper programs

The downloadable version from Watcom C++ currently doesn't support Win32 compilation. To compile the cphost.exe program you need the full version of Watcom. You can then build cphost.exe with wmake cphost.exe.

The DirectX 9 SDK is required to build cphost.exe. However Microsoft ships its SDK with library version 6.0 whereas Watcom only handles version 5.0. You can either use the batch file below to convert the libs (with lib.exe from some MS Visual Studio) or download the libs and headers.

If you want to modify the VXD driver you need the Win98DDK. But you can not download it anymore from Microsoft. Try a search on Google for the filename 98ddk.exe.
