Having troubles running Dos programs in Windows 7. Are you getting the same error that is on the figure below? Then you need to do few things………..
First you need to download and install – DOSBox.
It can download from – http://www.dosbox.com
Select the Windows version and install it in your machine.
First you need to mount the drive which you file is located. In my case, it is in the H directory.So type
Then you will see in the window, it says that the “Drive H is mounted as the local directory H:\“. Now go into the drive type H:
Likewise using cd command you can go to the directory that your file is located. To execute the exe file you just need to type only the file name as in figure 3.Then the dos program will be opened on the program window which we used earlier to locate the file as in figure 4.
cd – to go into a directory
cd.. – to back from a directory
dir – to see the available files and directories
