Got some old DOS software...?

...you can't get to run on Windows XP?

Finally you can run that favorite DOS lottery software or game you haven't been able to use in the last ten years.
Go to dosbox.com and download DOSBox for your PC. It may be smart to install a front end/GUI program as well.

If you got some old Windows 3.1 software which no longer run, it is possible to install Windows 3.1 in DOSBox.

I found this gem after looking for a MS DOS emulator to be able to run some DOS software which came with an old lottery book I bought on Amazon.

If your games runs too fast in DOSBox it's possible to reduce the number of cycles used by DOSBox. Cycles stands for Mhz in this case.
