VDOS is an extradordinary program. It allows old DOS programs to function on Windows 7, thus eliminating the need to set up Windows Virtual PC and Windows XP Mode; and on Window 10 it eliminates the need to set up...
I am using vDos to run FoxPro Dos programs on Windows 10 (32 & 64 bit) and Windows 7 (32 & 64 bit) on a local network. I wrote these programs over 25 years ago to use as retail pos and inventory control...
Great for DOS emulation, lightweight.
Works perfectly. Used it to resurrect our WAMPUM dBASE III clone from 1985. Everything works just as it did 32 years ago. Download WAMPUM from: ...
I have used Quicken almost since it was first published on MSDOS. I LOATHE all the Windows versions - yes, I have tried. When I moved to Win10 (64) I was going to find a way to run DOS Quicken or be damned...
Although I use Office in my Windows 7 environment, I still need to access files in WordStar and, believe it or not, Condor. vDos has been incredibly helpful! Thank you so much for providing this valuable product...
My wife, who is an accountant, relies on a DBASE III program circa 1986. Her trusty XP computer bit the dust a few months back and she replaced it with a shiny new computer running Windows 10 64-bit. This turned out to...
Having been a long-term user of DOSBox, I recently stumbled upon vDos, and was pleasantly surprised (***NOT*** about the vdos.info wbsite, stupid box-model makes many pages only partially visible...
vDOS works great, and I'm finding that it's a valuable daily tool. I struggled for a few years with DOSbox, and vDOS is light-years ahead in usability. vDOS runs all old-time DOS biz programs like VisiCalc...
vDos works almost perfectly with Clipper-based server/client software called MKS Micro Key Central-1, at least when running as a client (the server instance requires an LPT dongle or dongle emulator). The only major...
vDos links and alternatives.
vDos on Sourceforge: Installation programs and source code up to version 2015.04.10, and a (now static) forum for questions or problems.
vDosWP: Comprehensive documented WP-tailored package by Edward Mendelson. WordPerfect for DOS, and optionally PlanPerfect, WP Office Shell, and WP Editor.
dbDOS: Comes with a frontend to manage your DOS programs. Versions 1-7 were DOSBox based, the new dbDOSv version switched to using vDosPlus 2015 (see below).
DOSBox: DOS PC emulator more to the hardware level, vDos derived from it. Some 5% of DOSBox code still contributes to about 15% of vDos code base. But DOSBox is meant for DOS gaming.
NTVDMx64: For the fearless who fancy to (double)click a DOS program directly. Opposite to NTVDM running natively, it emulates a DOS machine. Mind, installing NTVDMx64 can really mess up your Windows system. Here is more documentation.
Tao ExDOS: Seemingly discontinued development (last update 2015), an enhancement of Windows 32 NTVDM. Windows 64 requires a virtual Windows 32 for ExDOS to run DOS applications.
vDosPlus: Depreciated vDos mod. Added support of LFN (Long File Names), IRQ1/INT9 keyboard hook for Visual Basic/QBasic (the IDE), and more (bling).
