    Just in case any of you have some old DOS programs which no longer work in any modern versions of Windows, if anyone is interested I have again fathomed out how to run most DOS programs in probably any version of Windows. Contact me for details even with Windows 10 software. I suggest you ensure ALL your DOS software is in the same folder

    There are two free software on the internet DOSCOPY and LAUNCHBOX. I prefer the former because it enables you to run any DOS software anywhere on your drive if you can use similar old DOS commands. Whereas the other which makes use of a copy of Doscopy it installs, to only run selected software in a pretty Windows like display. Post here if you want more info

    The creators of Launchbox appear to think the only people likely to run DOS software are kids for Games, so most of the instructions are in the form of videos like Youtube.
