Many older DOS games will not run on newer systems like Windows 2000 and Windows XP. That's why this very useful utility was created. It will run most DOS games without any problems. When I upgraded my OS to Windows 2000, I had a lot of problems running older games. But with DOSBox, I have not had any problems.
Although the interface is not the easiest to use, it only takes a few minutes to understand how to use it. Just type 'intro' at the main screen and hit 'Enter' for directions on how to use it.
If you're on a newer system, it's more than likely you will have problems running DOS programs. DOSBox will come in very handy, and at less than 1 MB, it's a must-have!
