As always, if you have any questions on this new release, check out the support page for the portable app as well as the application's main support pages. Searching the web can help, too. If you don't find an answer, drop a note in the forums.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Just wondering will there be a friendly interface for dosbox?
I don't know of any that are open source though.

Does not really matter, but it does speed things up. Wink

Thank you for the portable version of DosBox. It works great, now all we need is a portable front end for it Smile Dfend maybe

Entering DosBox and configuring it will put it apart from the PortableApps essence Sad
But it's been a great step Biggrin Thanks dudes!

DFend is probably the best candidate... Biggrin
Although I think it CAN run portable (although not integrated to the suite)

Win 2.0 on portable apps, anyone? lol Biggrin

I've installed Windows 3.11 in DosBox Smile

All you need to do is mount A: with a win311 installer files folder and mount a empty folder as C: where all installed files will go Smile

To start Windows type Autoexec.bat and
It's all!
