Hi guys, sorry for most likely a stupid question that has been asked many times but still: 1. We have a 2 folder dos app. C:\app1 C:\data1. The C:\data1 locations are hardcoded in C:\app1 executables. 2. We are evaluating vDOS for a site licence. 3. If I copy both aforementioned folders to vDOS folder - everything is good. How should I map the folders in autoexec that first folder sees the second one when accessing files like C:\data1\data.dbf?
Thanks for the quick reply! The thing is that I can't move the existing apps, they are deployed on a bunch of boxes and it would be hard to change the setup on all of them. Is there more non-intrusive way? I was able to configure DosBox, although I'm having other issues with it so I wanted to check out your app.
The DOS apps would just see a C: drive with C:\app1 and C:\data1, no matter where those are actually located in the Windows filesystem. But you could of course also match DOS C: to Windows C: in autoexec.txt”:
USE C: C:\ CD app1 app1.exe
No C: is needed since vDos starts with a C:\ prompt. You could have a look at www.vdos.info/faqs.html Miscellaneous - vDos/DOS drive letters are not those of Windows and Advanced - A portable DOS application.
