    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.
