Privalov, could you please replace the stub message 'this program cannot be run in DOS mode.' by 'This program cannot be run in DOS mode.' (unless there is a reason for the wrong spelling, of course).

The old "lower-case" ideology of fasm was the reason for this.

That makes sense as long as one writes programs for people who are aware of the intended ideology (that is, other programmers).

If one writes for "end users", however, their ideology is more like: "wrong spelling => unprofessional program => possibly buggy if not dangerous".

I don't really know many end users who go to native dos/dos mode Wink
On the other hand you never know what these end users will try...
