    Could win32 exe's run under door.sys instead of door32.sys?

    Could win32 exe's run under door.sys instead of door32.sys?

    door.sys and door32.sys are just drop files: text files created by the BBS to communicate parameters/status to an external program (e.g. door game). So of course, 16-bit DOS programs could read the door32.sys file if they wished and native Win32 exe's could read a door.sys file if they wished. But door.sys and door32.sys files do not contain the exact same information.

    Of course, don't confuse door32.sys with Wildcat!'s door32.dll - it's a completely different thing.
