What is DOSBox?
DOSBox is a free and open-source emulator of an Intel x86 personal computer designed to run software created for disk operating systems on IBM PC compatibles, primarily DOS video games. It was first released in 2002 when DOS technology was becoming obsolete. It is notable for its widespread use for running DOS games and being used in commercial re-releases of those games.
What is DOSBox used for?
MS-DOS software generally had difficulties running properly – if at all – on Windows systems starting with Windows 95. Dual-booting DOS and Windows was a common workaround in the 90s but was not very practical, and in later versions of Windows – not really viable either.
