Hi Gargo,

A Windows program works in userland and never have to enter protected mode and exit it.
Such behaviour could be seen in DOS programs.
An easy way to do that is to use a DOS extender, there are several the most famous IMO is HX DOS extender.

OsDev is also a nice place to find this kind of information:

Best regards,
