    Hi all.
    I was reading that you can run old games on Vista using 'Dosbox'?
    Does anybody have anymore info on how it works etc.

    Craig a bit here
    DOSBox is a DOS-emulator that uses the SDL-library which makes DOSBox very easy to port to different platforms. DOSBox has already been ported to many different platforms, such as Windows, BeOS, Linux, MacOS X...

    DOSBox also emulates CPU:286/386 realmode/protected mode, Directory FileSystem/XMS/EMS, Tandy/Hercules/CGA/EGA/VGA/VESA graphics, a SoundBlaster/Gravis Ultra Sound card for excellent sound compatibility with older games...

    You can "re-live" the good old days with the help of DOSBox, it can run plenty of the old classics that don't run on your new computer!

    DOSBox is totally free of charge and OpenSource.

    Check our "Downloads" section for the most recent DOSBox version

    If the games are slightly more modern and run on Windows 98-ME-2000 or XP you can use Virtual box which creates a small partition and creates and runs a virtual hard drive....
