Is it possible to play a DOS game on a 7 machine? Or can I set up one of my other machines so I can play it?

I found some oldies and I would really like to get them.

Check out DOSBox (link). It's a DOS emulator, and I've ran several games on it, with great success.

EDIT: Hyperlink failed :P

Thanks Guh-vah-pay LaughSmile

I took a look at it. It seems a bit complex but I think I can do it.

Have you seen the DOS games in the DOS museum? I think that is pretty cool.

I have seen it in the past and they offer a lot of previously commercial games :-)

If I remember correctly, some games you can drag the file to DOSBox and it will play automatically.
