Ok, so I have a collection of old DOS games, aka abandonware, and all refuse to run under XP. I've always known XP had a problem running old games but never took it seriously until now. So, do you guys know of a solution, or an emulator? Already tried running them Win95/98 compatibility mode, but no luck. Thanks!

I have had very few problems running DOS games under XP...perhaps even fewer than under Win 98, what games/programs are you trying to run and what are the problems...i.e the same for evry program? etc?

Having said that tere are some good Dos emulators out there...

Thanks for the response. I d-loaded DOS Box, will try it out. The only problems I'm running into is DOS games, that's it. All the other progs run like a dream.

Yeah, I have multiple OSes too. Win Me and Linux Mandrake. But since I run so many apps I hate to boot under different os just to play 2-3 games

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
