vDosPlus (formerly vDos-lfn) is a free general-purpose non-gaming DOS emulator running on Windows, based on vDos and DOSBox.
What is vDosPlus?
vDosPlus is designed to run non-gaming DOS applications in all current Windows versions. It provides advanced features such as support for file-locking (needed by multi-user applications) and printing to Windows-only (GDI) printers, but it also has many unique features such as a tighter integration with Windows and enhanced keyboard, mouse and display support. It was formerly known as vDos-lfn because its initial focus was added support for Windows-style long filenames or LFNs in addition to traditional DOS 8.3 file names, but now with a wide range of additional features there are much more than this. It is based on mature projects and also well tested by for example the XyWrite community and many normal or power users of various DOS applications, so it should be considered pretty stable as well.
Comments and Reviews
Excellent program. Useful for XyWrite (most advanced), WordStar (see Robert J. Sawyer's web pages) and WordPerfect (see Edward Mendelson's pages). Makes a DOS program expand beyond the memory and size limits of DOS inside Windows. Great, very useful tool
