Emulator for Windows XP
Ben Sternberg (University of
Arizona), a long time colleague and friend, has discovered a very
good DOS emulator after trying out maybe 20 packages. It is GNU
freeware and can be found at http://dosbox.sourceforge.net.
We do not have a lot of experience
with this yet but we suggest our DOS users download and try it out.
Because not all of our packages have been ported to
And because some users prefer the DOS platform, we do not plan
to discontinue our DOS software. We no longer sell software
protected DOS packages, only those protected by a hardware key. This
is because we have had problems with installing DOS software
protected packages on some of the newer operating systems.
Some users keep a DOS partition on their hard disk or keep
a machine running DOS for the older style DOS packages. This is your
DOS packages (Except GRADIX) will install and run on all systems up
through Windows XP with the right hardware key and drivers. We can
still supply the older iButton keys for use in pure DOS or systems
up through Windows 98.
Please keep in mind that installing, running and
especially printing with DOS software is not as clear cut on the
newer operating systems.
