Some time ago I accidentally invoked a DJGPP program on 64-bit Windows
7 and saw an error pop up saying that this application is incompatible
bla-bla-bla.  I didn't try looking for a work-around, but this
discussion:

   http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/vcgeneral/thread/bc18346c-4b8f-485e-ac5b-f4b752fe91e0

seems to indicate that it's either impossible, or could be done if you
run the program in XP compatibility mode.

Other threads, such as this one:

   http://groups.google.com/group/comp.os.msdos.djgpp/browse_thread/thread/2a997fff9228a545/29a2d00ecda9d047?pli=1

indicate that XP compatibility should be possible if you have a
Windows 7 system that includes it.
