Hi Oleg,

could you please tell me, what I would have to do
with the dos extender.
My aim is to boot pc with dos by FD. Then
I have to execute the built standalone app.

Could you imagine that this would be possible
with the DOS extender?

   Near to be impossible. 16bit DOS just doesn't have enough memory for
Python. Can you use 32bit DOS (DOS Extender)?

           Programmers don't die, they just GOSUB without RETURN.
