Trying to play Janes Fleet Command on Vista 32. I have a Q6600 and 3gb ram.

I need help with DOSBox. I have forgotten all the Dos knowledge I had, and would like to play this great old game. I have the retail version ;-)

I have checked the tutorials and while I understand, things don't seem to be happening.

I would like a really good frontend ! I am 43yrs old and have a few old games, would a Virtual Machine be a more trouble free approach?

Thanks,

00Billy

If you have the CD or floppies for an old operating system, try VirtualBox (freeware). It's easier to setup than the Microsoft one and has more features.

I use it on my XP computer to run Windows 7 and Ubuntu as virtual machines, and have also used it for 98 and Vista within XP. It supports operating system going back to 95 and DOS, so you should be able to get your games working, however old they are.
