Smiling Spectre Tsk. Pity. I had slight hope that I can start all this Win16 games in my brand new Win8.1. Will not happen. Ok, thank you!

No. Completely different APIs.

The Fifth Horseman You don't.
The only way to run Windows programs in DOSBox is to run Windows itself inside DOSBox and then the programs in there.

How can I change a Windows .exe to something that is compatible?

The Title says it all. I have followed the instructions from this site http://www.myabandonware.com/howto/, but then I get this notification that the program file is a Windows executable, and one that does not work on DOSbox. How do I get it to one that is compatible?

please help!
