Windows 95 & Dosbox 0.73


#1

I’m getting a Copy of Windows 95 Upgrade…I just wanna ask is

Will it install in Dosbox 0.73…

Does the Upgrade install over 3.1 or just install it in Dosbox


#2

does virtual pc or vmware not work?


#3

I’m on a PC not on a Mac…I saw oon youtube you can by uppacking CVS

Virtual PC is a better fit. It’s also free and runs on Windows:

Dosbox may work but it’s probably iffy at best.


#5

give Virtualbox (http://www.virtualbox.org/), it’s also free and an open source alternative to Virtual PC. I feel like either of those are going to be a much better fit than DOSbox, means Dosbox is an emulator, instead of a hypervisor like a Virtual Machine


#6

I thought Virtual PC was only for Mac.thanks for the link


#7

you can run dosbox in any version of windows.


#8

I stick with Dosbox…Virtual PC dosn’t run Win 3.1 or 95…Virtualbox is to hard to understand & trying to install 3.1 on it


#9

I’m curious, why do you want to install Windows 3.1 or Windows 95?


#10

I’m only defending Virtual PC since I’ve used it before (not to run Windows 95). This MS link says that it is supported:

play fallout 1 duh

Heh, the guy on the Dosbox page said he wanted to play Sonic CD. It was pointed out that there’s a patch to make it work on XP and that the Sega CD version on an emulator wouldn’t have to load. I’m guessing it’s also for an old game.


#13

I got DOS & win 3.11 to work on Virtual PC…Because I’m running on Vista Basic…I have no CD or Mouse support


#14

win3.1 needs mouse drivers


#15

I got the mousse to work…Did 3.11 support CD Rom??

Yes. You probably need a CDROM driver loaded in your autoexec.bat or config.sys. I’m an old bastard, but it’s been too long since I played with 3.1. The last 3.1 box I was on didn’t have a CDROM. You had to copy shit to floppies. Try getting a hold of a Windows95/98 boot disk and check out the included files. There’s probably a mscdex or similar that it needs.
