I am interested in running some old DOS Games & maybe OS/2 Warp.

A search resulted in many Sites providing DOS Box software.

Does anyone here have advice on which version might be best?

Might most (all?) that I found be the same DOS Box, but available from different Web Sites?

DOSbox is a great utility, get to know it and you'll love it...
Anyways, whenever you want to download shareware, be sure to download it from a trustworthy site, and upload it to VIRUSTOTAL.com before opening.

I suggest you try THIS LINK in order to download a safe version of DOSbox, appropriate for your OS.


If you're a first-time user, be sure to visit THIS WIKI to know what you can expect.
You might want to read the Manual as well.


If you got it working the way you want it, there's tons of freeware you can get from sites like ABANDONIA.com
Not to spam or anything, but they really make sure everything is legit and safe.

Version 0.74 is the latest I know of.


Good luck and we would appreciate your feedback! :)

Amst3rDamag3: Thanx for the advice.

It looks reliable enough for me to thank you before I try it.
