This page is a machine translation.

About the DOS which is being lost at present
It is a page for the still using person.
As for the status of the present DOS environment, the DOS, it is a DOS museum.
The 3 corner content which is
It thinks that it mediates and that it wants to go.

Recently, it adds Windows3.1 information, too, at any time because of the trick lack.
At present, it manages as the type OS unification site of 16 bits.
But not understand
As soon as information is gathered, it plans to mediate between 3.1 once more to another page.
Also, it adds information about the app, the game, the mega demonstration which was passive so far, on the emulator passive and so on, too, at any time.
In the one which needs the deeper information, refer to the links which are under the site.

Future DOS environment

In the WIN9x type, as the last, the DOS from the MS Inc. had ended in the development.
However, the DOS is for the format, the BIOS update of the HDD in the present, too.
As the existence to be necessary and to be indispensable mainly in the installation of WINDOWS and so on
It is a shadow at present but it continues to be used.
Around the equipment centered on the reuse which is low in cost, the @0s equipment centered on it
The user who continues the development of the DOS relation still exists.
By the foreign countries where PC98 which is the unique standard of the country doesn't exist
It is evaluative as the stable OS with high compatibility at present.
Domestic, it thinks that it wants to introduce, dividing out.

The PC/AT type
By the AT machine that the popularization is moving ahead in the whole world
The DOS with all kinds like the above exists.
It is basically used mainly in the @0s type at present.
PCDOS 7.02000
MSDOS 7.xx
DR-DOS 7.05
Equal "GA" exists.

The PC98 type
The DOS which exists at present
MSDOS 7.xx
However, it exists.
The development group of the open source by 98 types
FREEBSD is popular mainly.
It became the motive power which forms the status of FREEBSD in Japan at present.
At present, information is published in the following site.

As for FREEDOS, the development is proceeded with as the head family transplant.
98 editions of FreeDOS are exhibited to the following site.

About the distribution for DOS
The distribution exists in the DOS, too, like the Linux.
It is to add software to the DOS and to compose it to the practical form.

Dr-DOS means the DOS of Novell and extended Enhanced Dr-DOS.
In the DOS, it has the performance of the highest peak and a community is established.

The DOS of GPL 1.0 at present
It makes famous TOOL of FREEFDISK the beginning and it is making unique DOS.
It is flagrant as the news site of DOS in general, too.
It shoulders the center of the present DOS.

mini FreeDOS floppy distro
It added a various app with the FreeDOS base.
It is quite updated until recently.

The 32-bit version of FreeDOS While the recently development stops
The pattern with the move of all to FreeDOS Was it integrated?

NX-DOS is a development project of the unique substitution Kernel of the base of 16 bits, 32 bits.
To spend long years During development

The network-wise DOS to have incorporated Netware Client into
Capturing PCI PnP, USB memory, Archne, VNC-Viewer
It improves user-friendliness.

MultiDOS Server
The distribution of the Dr-DOS base
It introduces Seal2 as the GUI and it is adding much improvement like Linux.
It introduces the present DOS environment to the full including TCP/IP and so on.
At present, it is free with beta version. The captured feature is as in the record below.

* NTFS (Windows XP/NT)
* EXT2/EXT3 (Linux)
* FAT32 (Win95 OSR2, Windows 98, Windows ME)
* FAT16 (DOS)
* HPFS (OS/2 Warp)
* Bootable by the CD-ROM without the need of reconfiguring;
* A RAMDISK is automatically created if a Hard Disk is not connected;
* ISDN, xDSL (PPoE) protocols are supported as well as LAN (DHCP, BOOTP);
* Even a 386-class PC may be turned into a HTTP/POP3/SMTP/NEWS server or Gateway;
* Many peripherals using an USB port may be connected, including HD, RW/R-CD recorders, printers,
all of them with no need of a special driver, because they are automatically recognized and set up;
* Linux emulation has been supported as if it were a native program;
* If sound card is fully compatible with SoundBlaster, it is detected by the system automatically;
* A special emulator installs and sets up MacOS 7.0;
* DivX, XVid, MPEG-2, MP3, OGG Vorbis, DVD, among other modern standards of multimedia, are detected by the system;
* A brand-new graphical interface allows real multitas k mode programs to run as Windows, Linux or MacOS do;

Because there is live CD in the following site, try.

Stream OS
32bitOS which is developed with the Pascal base as the language
"DEISUTORI" in Russia of the DOS extender base which aimed at Unix like
The design philosophy is as in the record below.

*scientific tasks such as long calculations;
*finding the best architecture of mixed kernel;
*academic interests.

The merit which is in the HP is as in the record below.

*32-bit fast kernel;
*no global kernel locks;
*full parallel threading model;
*easy API;
*integrated Virtual Filesystem support called StreamFS;

DOSCORE is the distribution of the FreeDOS base.
It loads a GUI with Seal and Ozone.
Phoenix OS which was before is a name (returning to original) pattern.
ISO of the Alpha version can be downloaded at present.
It has a purpose of making add the following feature.
Because the development objective is too high, where it is possible to be realized is unclear.

* USB Drive Support
* Fat32 Support
* DPMI Support
* Ram Drive
* 3D Testers
* Dos Jump (3d Ski Jumping)
* Texture Map (3dFX Tester)
* Installer Clean Installation(Text Mode)
* Wine For DOS (32-BIT Applications)
* Web Server (But not yet setup or enabled)
* VESA Drivers

Gauvain OS
The DOSGUI set which is developed in QuickBasic4.5, making MSDOS6.22 a base
"DEISUTORI" in France which was filled with the application with GUI + all kinds

The merit which is in the HP is as in the record below.

>Lecteur de CD (Driver de cd IDE universel)
>Creation graphiques (QP Painter)
>Creation statistiques (graph)
>Creation logicielle (Quick Basic 4.5)
>Utilisation facile (Interface graphique Gauvain)
>Possibilite de navigation sur internet (Arachne)
>Distribution optimise (division en trois repertoires
: C:\PRG, C:\SYS, C:\GVN) et instalation de la disquette
complementaire avec en plus l'edit de Windows 95)

Linster OS
The GUI set by the FreeDOS base
Style "NA""ZIDESU" which aims at the 95 wind screen
It is the state of 486 pieces of 386 pieces of operation at quite. It still is a development version.
The serials have a page.
Does it let's intend to sell to this Win, Unix prime surely?

MS-DOS7.00, 7.10 (Win9598) The type
Win95, DOS7.0, 7.1 which is made 98 bases, too, separate from the Windows and are usable.
Specifically, DOS7.1 corresponds to difference LFN, FAT32 with the conventional DOS, being average.
Only, Tool and the app of the part are the style which doesn't work on FAT32.
Of course, Windows3.1 can be worked on DOS7, too.
Because the following has a reference link, try by all means.

The DOS-MINIX type
The DOS version of the small UNIX which was developed by the "TANNENBAUMU" professor as the education business
The MINIX very thing is developed by the GNU license at present.
Ver3 to have supported TCP/IP, X Window is made public.
It is possible to reproduce anyway simple UNIX environment on the DOS by the utility.
It is suitable for the use by the emulator and the test purpose.
The site of head family Minix is the following.

The Windows3.1 type
Open Windows
The details are in the investigation but are the style which aims at the clone of Windows3.1.
To work, the file of native Windows3.1 still is the style of need.

Saying that there is DOSGUI where the software of Win3.1 which is called FreeWin moves
Kapper never try but to do the being of the interest refer to the following site once.
The screen shot is in the following.
It is possible to drop a file from the following site.
Screen shot

Windows 93
It is Windows for Workgoups at the kernel of 16 bits of Win Of 32 s of Win of 3.11.
The distribution of the capturing and made 3.1 base
Regrettably, this is made with French base.
w which is OK or becomes a feeling like a license
Try by all means and see because there is a ISO file in the following site.

Mini-Windows boot disk
The compact Windows which was gathered as BootDisk's being special
It supports FAT16, 32, too, with the kernel of the MSDOS7.10 base and it is mediated between.
w to be OK or for this, too, to become a feeling like a bald license
Will it be "ZIYANAI" not to be in near blackly fairly?
Try and see because there is BootDisk file in the following site.

After windows95, OS2


About the status of the DOS

The driver relation

The list information on the driver is here.
Confirm information on various hard almost.

MBR customize Tool
of the part (MBR : the master boot record) at the head of the HDD when starting up OS
It becomes the mechanism which starts up according to the description of the specification after preceding and reading.
In case of the Windows, it is automatically written in case of OS installation.
But becoming easily the structure which can not be rewritten
of GRUB, Lilo which is adopted with the Linux can customize freely.
It becomes a mechanism.
In FreeDOS, METAKERN is used.
MBRWizard, Free Copy/Restore MBR Utility which is in the following site
It is MBR Tool to support a Windows, Linux in addition to the DOS.
It is possible to customize MBR on the DOS if using this.
It thinks that there is a merit sufficiently about MBR's being able to be restored from the DOS at the time of being "ZATOIU".
Also, the DOS version of GRUB, too, is made public.
This can be used by customizing it, too, in the same way as the Linux version.
It is transplanted to PC98, too, and it is utilized with the Linux.
By the FDISK/MBR command OBJ DO and to make DOS start up from FDD, the CD as the last means
It overwrites and making restore with one way (FreeDOS, MSDOS Only equal to or more than 6.00)
Give the following site by the reference by all means.

It introduces to the following as the typical MBR tool.

The DOS, the MBR management tool as the WindowsCMD app
The tool which files MBR and is supported, restores and can be customized
Because it distributes freely in addition to convenience's being very good in the DOS environment paying while simple and it is possible to use
It is used for a lot of MBR, recovery tools.
From this place of the download

It is used by the command like the following as the example.
C:\mbrwiz /Save=C:\mbr.bin
C:\mbrwiz /RESTORE=C:\mbr.bin

The OS always starts up one piece of customize of MBR if making a mistake in it and passes away.
Take scrupulous notice in the range of the responsibility of the individual and use it.


FDIKS is partition management Tool by the disk.
It is indispensable Tool in all OS which uses memory media such as the HDD.
It is the necessity which is loaded into all OS including the Linux.
It was taken over by Win9x including the 32nd prize FAT, too, in case of the DOS and it was improving.
A development including FreeDOS and so on is continued in recent years, too.

It is FreeFDISK that developed with the evolution of FreeDOS.
The characteristic
It supports in 128 GB.
It is possible to use in the command line form and it is possible to process in the batch file.
Multi- compact bootloader who is called BootEasy bundles.
It is possible to customize with the Config file.
Bootloader supports the other OS, too.
It supports a partition except the DOS, too.
But then, are simple if comparing in FDISK of the GUI type and Unix
The new feature, too, is additional and there is not a problem in the independent use.
Also, for the license of GNU GPL, it is possible to alter.
But the author can not grasp recent development circumstances sufficiently
Ver1.2.1 is available in the mirror site of following FreeDOS.
It recommends to the person who doesn't want to use UNIX for the management of the non-DOS partition specially.
Incidentally, it is the one of the 32nd prize FAT even if it manages a partition in FreeFDISK.
By ordinary MSDOS which doesn't support by the kernel level and so on
It is requiring care because it doesn't recognize in case of start-up.

Partition resizing Tool

It is Tool which resizes a partition without breaking the file which is in the Windows well.
Because it is unconfirmed, it organizes the present situation later.

The file, drive restoration Tool

This is comparatively uncommon recovery Tool in the Windows.
It is Tool that the file can be managed by the sector level of the drive and be recovered.
Because it is unconfirmed, it organizes the present situation later.

It is FAT32 from FreeDOS Undelete comes out.
For the details, give the end of the following link by the reference.


The DOS except the conventional DOS DOS window of WIN9x from the origin
LFN(Long File Name) , Not supporting VFAT
Because 8.3 is a principle about the file name of the DOS
The file name has broken when copying forcibly by the back-up and the recovery and so on.
The supporting software
The minute information is in the following page.

It is NTFS in DOS.

The driver to read NTFS in the DOS is exhibited to the following page.
Saying that it gets to do the can which reads and writes to FAT32, NTFS of it is read
Saying that it works on WINDOWS if writing in Config.sys of WINDOWS9X
It thinks that it should use for emergency because there is BOOTDISK file.
Also, the software which is called NTFSDOS, too, is marketed.
The special driver of this reading in is free and is made public.
Also, by this tool, say that it is possible to do the reading and writing of NTFS, Change Password.
With the transplant from the Linux business, the license can be freely in GPL used.
Chntpw for Dos
But being the software which changes the password of NTFS of NT3.5-4.0
It becomes NTFS driver for the DOS, too, and it mounts the NTFS drive of equal to or more than 8 G.
It is possible to read and write but it is the fault that doesn't support the format of 2000 and XP, VISTA.

It is FAT32 in DOS.

FAT32 in the DOS needs support by the kernel level basically.
Therefore, it is possible to use in the DOS with supporting version.
The OS which supports, being average is as in the record below.
MS-DOS 7.10 (Windows 98) + Patch
Enhanced DR-DOS 7.01.x
FreeDOS 1.0
There is a way of using using the driver in the other way.
FAT32 is Windows 95 It was supported from OSR2.
It works, being average in the DOS which is loaded into WINDOWS of this since then.
In the others, it is the driver of above-mentioned NTFS, FREEFDISK of FREEDOS built-in.
FAT32 driver for Dr-DOS 7.03(DRFAT32.SYS ) and so on exist.
At present, it is composed of the DRFAT32.EXE, DRFAT32.sys 2 corner file.
It is X:\DRFAT32.EXE in AUTOEXEC.BAT /m:120 >NUL.
It becomes usable if incorporating "WO".
It is possible to download in the following.

It is Ext2, 3, ReiserFS in DOS.

Ext2 of the Linux, 3, ReiserFS can be read and written in the DOS.
LTools which is in the following site is usable in the DOS, Win3.x, 9x, the NT series.
It is possible to work by CUI, the GUI, the browser.
The equal to or more than 2-G drive can be used and it thinks that it is convenient for the Linux user who is doing Dua Roberta.
of the fling by all means because besides, too, there are some

It is HFS in DOS.

HFS which is the format of Mac in the DOS can be read and written.
HFS Utilties which is in the following site is usable in the DOS, Win3.x, 9x, the NT series.
It is possible to work by Mtools similar CUI, the GUI, the browser.
Also, it is Shear as the FDD mount but MAC-ETTE, too, is in the following.
The equal to or more than 2-G drive can be used and it thinks that it is convenient for the Mac user of the conversion of the file, the emulator and so on.
of the fling by all means because besides, too, there are some

It is SATA in DOS.

The SATA drive which is the center of recent hard in the DOS can be read and written.
In case of FreeDOS, the HDD which was recognized in BIOS by the Kernel level can be read and written.

Also, CDROM driver, GCDROM for SATA, is made public in FreeDOS.
The example of Config.sys and Autoexec.bat comes out. Try once.

determine number to detect 1st/2nd/3th SATA native ide controller


Link drive letter to cdrom drive


But also, the driver of UltraDMA includes UDMA2.SYS
SATA, too, seems able to work. (Source unconfirmed information)

The Japanese FEP relation

To enter 98 DOS by Japanese, FEP must be subscribed.
Because the dictionary and the converter ability are insufficient in the DOS times
To be best is to buy ATOK8 and to use but as for becoming with now, the getting is difficult.
When it isn't possible to get, it uses IME.
To be and to subscribe the driver of FEP are general.
Also, the dictionary of MSIME95 of Win95 can be used by subscribing it, too.
Refer to the end of the following link.
When using MSIME95 in PC-DOS


The hard ware relation

It makes the USB boot disk of the DOS base.

By the others of the BIOS upgrade of the motherboard
Much opportunity to make DOS start up through USB should occur.
It introduces because there is a detailed way in the following site.

It is USB equipment in DOS.

Equipment below the present is reported.
FDD, HardDisk, CD-ROM(RW), Mouse, ZipDrive, MO, the LAN and so on work.
But the author isn't understood because he isn't trying
There are a driver, explanation of the USB equipment which it is possible to use for the following page in the DOS it.
The operations check of the USB equipment is reported mainly in the storage relation.
According to the site of above-mentioned Darkehorse, USB2.0, too, seems to want to be dealt with.

Refer to the following therefore in USB toward Windows95, NT4.0.
Way of using USB in Windows95, NT4.0

It is a tape drive in DOS, Win9x.

But have passed away but almost used now for the price reduction of the HDD
The tape drive which is used with the general NT base, too, is usable in the DOS, Win9x.
It thinks that it is convenient to restore a supported dater.
Because the driver is existing at the site of each manufacturer
Almost, after downloading, it uses by the backup program.
Following is convenient for the search of the driver.
It is Shear but following Datman supports a backup program.


The Network relation

It is Network in DOS.

There are some ways of using a network in the DOS.
The general way is Microsoft Network Client It is the way of using 3.0, LanManager.
NetBEUI, IPX/SPX, TCP/IP, the DLC are usable.
But, to use TCP/IP, it consumes 230 KB of conventional memories.
The person that the memory becomes a feeling is Artisoft Lantastic There is 6, too, but 6 is charged.
The other way includes the way of using Novel Netware DOS Client.
To use Netware Client, the server becomes need particularly.
There is NetWare add on in OpenDOS7.01/DRDOS7.03 and it is supported.
There is explanation in the following page about the explanation of the MS relation, the driver (the English version).
Also, NeOS, IBM LAN Client, InvisibleLan , too, are the style which is but are in the investigation.
The explanation in Japanese is in the following page.
Consult the end of the following link therefore in the application and see it.
It plans to attempt to mediate in the meantime.

About Webserver in DOS

If not worrying absolutely in the performance from the network-connection
It is possible to use as the Web server, the FTP server, the DNS server, the mail server in the DOS.
Some various server software is made public.
But it is possible to operate at 286, 386 if becoming the feeling
Individually, is it (95, above NT) a Windows at the memory and in the aspect of the performance?
It recommends use with Unix, the Linux strongly.

About SSH in DOS

SSH can be used when doing the remote connection which used Telnet in the DOS.
The terminal communication from the DOS becomes secure if there is this.

It is a remote desktop in DOS.

It is possible to think of using a remote desktop as the 1 corner way of the GUI in the DOS, too.
In the DOS, there are Desktop On Call and DOSVNC, DOSRDP in the available software.
These is a client mainly but it is possible to use for the model which becomes an object by them if making a server.
Specifically, Desktop On Call is convenient for the person who is using Webboy.

Also, DOSRDP which used WindowsTerminalServer appeared.
It is DOSVNC and difference Shear, but it is high-speed and stability, 16-bit color are said to be usable.
of once by all means the trial

It is 2 Channel in DOS (2ch).

To see 2ch in the DOS, it connects the above TCP/IP and it is possible to read via the browser.
Nothing then, it isn't comfortable same of usual Windows particularly.
2 Channel browser which is used in the DOS at present was cultivated in the 200LX times.
Some browsers exist.
Also, it is possible to see using the text browser of Lynx via P2, too.
It attempts to confirm the following site and it spares it below.

It is BitTorrent in DOS.

The connection of 2 P of P which used BitTorrent in the DOS can be used.
ctorrent-ng which is Port of BitTorrent is the one of the top of FreeDOS.
There was a report to have worked under the DJGPP environment.
The details attempt to see the following site.


The application relation

The DOS application is usable at present through the DOS, Windows3.1, 95.
Also, of making the all kinds of PDA environment, being various it is possible to use through the emulator.
It thinks that it doesn't think of now, and so on, and that it wants to mediate between now including the meaning of the soft complementing.

The DOS Extender relation

of the memory area which it is possible to have used only 640, 768 KB for originally on the DOS with DOS Extender
It is the software which extends an available amount-of-memory on the DOS using the protected mode.
At present, with the popularization of the Windows, the development and the use had become a decline.
The advanced game like Doom, WarCraft2 by using DOS Extender
It realized advanced application such as AutoCad1.1, Watcom C.

As for present DOS Extender, more than one development is continued.
Recently, Win32-PE (.exe, .dll, .ocx, .sys, the .scr type executable file) works.
The development such as the emulation of 32 API of Win is proceeded with.
Give the following site for more information by the reference.

HX DOS Extender
It supports Win32-PE, emulation of 32 API of Win, OpenGL, and so on.
Specifically, it supports x86 emulation such as bochs, Qemu, DOSBox, too.
mplayer(!) , Working to the various compiler, the emulator
Indeed and it is updated in the continuation at present.
That the Win32 app works where in future is to be pleasant.

By the list of the software to test actually and for the operations check to come off
It is exhibited to following Dr-DosWiki.
of the reading by all means about doing the being of the interest

The entry has an update-condition at the following BBS.

DOS Extender which was used in the wide area in the DOS prime times which were developed by the Tenberry Inc.
The app of DOOM and so on are moving on this top of the softness.
of hard of Sound by the NT type OBJ DO but Win9x, the NT type work
There is a lot of software which doesn't work that it isn't possible to work directly, too.
It is the app which is indispensable for the meaning which is due to the use environment.

It is a GUI in DOS.

From the one that the GUI in the DOS derived from fy Lahr such as DOS-SHELL
It exists to multi- mouse + window, the real one which was called multitasking.
But the one of the most cask is a Windows and the one which was called OS/2
There is one not to have seen eyes the day as the DOS substitution environment in the past quite variously.
Because there are some screen shots in the following site
Confirm to do the being of the interest.

GEM is the GUI environment which was done by commercial in 1985-1989.
At present, it is made public in the form such as FreeGEM.
It is making public OpenGEM, too, in the form of the distribution of FreeGEM.
A unique app, too, is developed by the GUI which was conscious of Mac strongly.

The GUI application the base of which was FreeGEM also
It is developed through the Net in following WebRing at present, too.
GUI simple "BURAUZAYA" which is uncommon to the DOS in
FreeGEM/XM of the multitasking is made public.
of the trial of the way to be interested in because XP is said to work by all means
It may be funny when using with the app of Webboy and VNC .

Desktop 2
The GUI environment of the form of Menu, Icon which was conscious of Windows3.0
The light-weight place is a characteristic to the emergency which works at 286, 640 K.

It has 32-bit GUI and it is providing advanced Multimedia environment including VGA, Win9x LFN support .
An advanced specification is required in the other side, the DOS which is providing very advanced environment.
It is in the fault that the operation is unstable because also, are in the development process at present.
The minimum specification needs the environment of 486, 8 M of memories, VGA, DPMI, equal to or more than 1.6-M HDD.
At present, a separate-project, too, is developed as Xseal.

It is the GUI environment of Unix/NeXT-style.
It is providing advanced GUI environment, but it is using 32BitDJGPP and the threshold seems high.
In the minimum, 80486, 4MB RAM, 9MB HD, the recommendation are Pentium It is 90-MHz +, 16-MB + RAM, 20MB HD.

Necromancer's Dos Navigator
It is operation "SURUNO" GUI environment on DPMI32.
In addition to LFN, Multi-windowed interface, it is providing advanced GUI environment.
It is made public in the form which works at multi- platform in addition to the Windows and the Linux.

It is the GUI library environment of the C base.
It is very simple structure but in the direct light weight, the author is said to test at 386, 40 MHz.
You test by all means because it is made public in GPL and it is "NA".

DOS GUI with the simplicity that Fun500 was manufactured in QBASIC The development version
The pattern to be manufacturing a simple GUI app
It is making basic feature such as Drag and Drop accompany.

The other GUI
Specified with the separate section eyes of X Window which works in the DOS in the following by it
Also, some GUIs show in the following beforehand to the above ȊO, too, because there are they.
It confirms details later and it plans to organize them.

Krono Junior
Millenium OS
* Ozone, Beta Versions - full featured desktop environment
* DOS Access - A very good GUI (32-bit, uses Allegro)
* LCARS24 - A gStar Trek"-like GUI (32-bit, uses Allegro)
* Scirus

It is X Window in DOS.

It is the X Window version of DESQview which was developed as the GUI environment in the DOS.
At first, it was to do shareware being but regrettably, the development is stop "SARE".
It is made public at the following site as abondonware with DESQview.
Try to do the being of the interest by all means.

It is multi- media in DOS.

Softness of multi- media relation which works in the DOS yes shoe OBJ DO or being
It is gathered as the list by following DR-DOSWiki.
Because are specified by the various MP3 player, the list, the details of the video player
Read to do the being of the interest by all means.

It recycles a MP3 in the DOS.

The MP3 the recycling of which in the hardness of the low specification is difficult, too, can replay in the DOS.
To recycle a general MP3, it is 486 100 MHz, the CPU above Pentium, the 4-8-Mb memory are necessary.
As for the MP3 player in the DOS, MPXPLAY about which the environment of the GUI is excellent is often used.
It makes DOS, DOS window environment a target and it continues to be updated at present.
The accumulator, AC3, APE, DTS, FLAC, MP2, MPC, OGG, WMA, WV, CDW in addition to the MP3
Also, it is compatible in a lot of formats such as ASF, AVI, MP4, WAV.
Of course, it is a Windows 98, 2000. It supports XP, Vista, too.
Try once by all means.

It recycles a video in the DOS.

It is possible to recycle MOPEG1 video on the DOS even if the low specification is hard.
When using DMPEG, VMPEG, the video of 160x120 is a thing with replay's being possible in the case of 386, 33 MHz.
Doing the explanation being that equal to or more than 486 can be replayed by in its own way boiling 486
but there may are not a value in the low specification app so much about becoming with now
Saying whether or not it should use for a test purpose on the emulator?
There is an explanation of the MPEG environment of the DOS, each OS which contains Win3.1 in the following site.
of the reading by all means about doing the being of the interest

Also, it is Shear but QuickView is the software which can be replayed to AVI, DIVX, the MP3.
But writing that it is usable at the 32-bit protected mode and equal to or more than 386
To make recycle these actual videos, it is Pentium But made 166 MHz.
It is written when equal to or more than 300 MHz of P-U are necessary for the fruit to operate.
In case of video recycling, it is unreasonable and it doesn't use DOS and it seems that had better replay it in Win9x.

DUGL Player


The equal to or less than 1-M computer demonstration to have been proud of the prime ever in Amiga
It abbreviated and Megademo, too, propagated to the DOS and was proud of the time prime.
