Most probably, Windows tries to run this program in the so-called "DOS
Mode", whereby Windows is shut down.  DJGPP programs need a DPMI
server, which is shut down together with Windows.

To solve this, either change the program's properties to not run it in
DOS Mode, or download CWSDPMI (v2misc/csdpmi4b.zip from the usual
DJGPP sites) and put cwsdpmi.exe in the same directory where your
program lives.
