Thumbs up

I tried installing DOSBox, following the tutorial on this site. But when I double-click the installer, it doesn't go into a setup program. It just pops up a command prompt window and then it closes. What's wrong? Thanks.

I think there's something wrong with the link from Abandonia, because the file was only 16K. I found it on the sourceforge site and it's 1264 K. Hopefully this will work.

the one on abandonia is a link to the homepage of dosbox
not the file itself.

In my point of view the easyest way of installing dosbox is to install DosBox Game Launcher that comes with an up to date dosbox 0.65 cvs. The only thing you need is java. Other advantages of DBGL is that starting games and settinp them up is just so easy. You can get it from here http://home.quicknet.nl/qn/prive/bla.../dbgl/#install

good luck
