Yes. I know that now. ^^

...I read the description you gave in that other topic & quoted here.

Never thought of it. I'd expect to find the regular stuff there - a shortcut, a readme, and some other crap - not the conf file!

You learn something new every day, I suppose.

However, the proper path to the DOSBox config file in XP is:
<Hard disk letter>:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\Application Data\DOSBox\dosbox-0.73.conf

(NOTE: The Application Data folder is hidden. Make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is enabled under Folder Settings in the Control Panel.)

You can output the present configuration settings to a new config file, you know. There's a command for that.
