What do you do with a Widget-type file? My Windows XP couldn't figure it out, and neither could I in a short amount of time!

"DosBox works as games player"

September 23, 2011  |  By jereese

 |  Version: DOSBox 1.01

Pros

I can run Paradox in DosBox which will not run under XP mode. My OS is Win 7. I can edit and run most functions.

Cons

No printing from DosBox. I have a parallel printer but is on LPT3 not LPT1. There is file I can edit to fix the problem.

Summary

Now I can run some old programs from the old dos in my 64 bit Windows 7.

"The last resort of the nostalgia-stricken gamer"

September 02, 2011  |  By ChrisSorensson

 |  Version: DOSBox 1.01

Pros

Runs everything that fails to run under newer Windows natively; can be tweaked to bits; allows use of graphic filters and other enhancements

Cons

Does require a fair amount of fiddling before it runs bearably (without overheating your PC or stuttering every minute or so); not quite intuitive either

Summary

Oftentimes, the only alternative to keeping a decade-old PC with MSDOS installed on it for scratching the occasional DOS gaming itch. A potent alternative, at that.

"Get those old games working on newer verions of Windows"

August 14, 2010  |  By sysplex

 |  Version: DOSBox 1.01

Pros

Great piece of software to get old Windows 95 games running under Vista and Win 7 correctly. I've used this successfully with Warcraft II and Command & Conquer.

Cons

Some settings are tricky to set correctly. A bit of trial and error required to get them perfect. Be patient.

Summary

Go for it if you have legacy software to install or get old games playing properly.
