based software solution
A lot of people have older
dos based software programmes, gambling software, racing system software,
games etc etc that just won't run properly in Windows 7 +.
I had a few bits and pieces
lying around that while they may not work in today's racing environment
they are fun to "play with" from time to time.
One of our users (Steve)
kindly sent me a very instructive email on where to go to sort them
The key site is:http://www.dosbox.com/
Here's a precis of Steve's
very useful email - thanks!
But there's a free program
Not too hard to use - create a folder
on your hard drive and copy the older dos based files.
In my case I created "d:\dos"
Run Dosbox and mount
This gives the folder a drive letter.
eg c: but can use any letter.
log to c: and run the bat file.
All appears to work fine.
What a legend Steve is !! Knowledge shared is knowledge gained. Well
