In fact, you were not using CWSDPMI all the time. 
The startup code checks if there is already any DPMI host 
running and load CWSDPMI only if none is found. So you
do not need it. The zip picking utility should not
be changed, because if you are giving away compiled 
programs that run under DOS, you should also add
a copy of CWSDPMI.EXE.
