Re: [WIN7] 64 bit Windows 7 vs. an old DOS app

I second the vote for DOSBox. I am currently running it to play a very old game called Sherlock. Screen shot included above for reference.

There is a word document that came with the game. See Pic #2 for a section of that document, and take note of the dates, and system requirements!

To get the screen shot of the game, it is in a window. But, you can run things in full screen mode without the window if you want.

I am currently running Windows 7 Enterprise x64, and it runs without any issues.

By the way, DOSBox also works without any problems on Windows 8.

Were you still able to get an license for such an old game?

I'm not sure. I know in the documentation, and on the main screen, there is a name and address of the person to send then $15 to. Not sure what would happen if I tried to do that today.
