If you remove the MS DOS header, the Windows loader will fail to load your executable, because (from what the documentation says), the loader reads the IMAGE_DOS_HEADER.e_lfanew field (which contains the file offset of the IMAGE_NT_HEADERS). {Actually, I think it will load the file, it will just fail to execute properly.) I'm just guessing here, but I would guess that the loader checks alot of things to determine if the Portable Executable is valid. You could test this by calling LoadLibrary and providing your new file as a parameter, instead of just attempting to launch it normally ( with CreateProcess).
Actually, I have no idea what will happen when it encounters that space where the original IMAGE_NT_HEADERS used to be.
Did you actually try loading this new file?
In his article, Matt Pietrek states: "Immediately following the PE header in memory is an array of IMAGE_SECTION_HEADERs." This is the Section Table. Since the size of the NT header is known, I would guess that the loader has a problem resolving where to load the Section Table, if it cannot find it at it's normal location. This table contains it's own set of headers, many of it's fields are RVAs, that tell the loader where to find everything else in the file.
Also, (and I just realized this in re-reading your code) you call CopyMemory for the two PE headers, and then initialize a new IMAGE_DOS_HEADER, and you don't write this structure (nor the IMAGE_NT_HEADERS) to LPBYTE lpFile.
You should re-think your entire appraoch to the problem.
