Running DOS Application under Windows 7 64 Bit.

CyrusNima asked on

If my DOS application does not require FULL SCREEN mode and ran perfectly fine in a DOS Window under XP. The application is a FoxPro for DOS.

My question is;

If I install the "XP Compatibility mode" under the 64 Bit Windows 7, can I still run those DOS applications ?

Hi CyrusNima,

Welcome to Windows 7 Community Forums

The Dos programs will run in Windows 7 64 bit edition if the programs are compatible with 64 bit editions.

You can install each Dos application in XP compatibility mode. The steps are as below:

1. Select the DOS application by right clicking on it.

2. Select ‘Properties’.

3. Click on the ‘Compatibility’ tab

4. Place a check mark next to ‘run the program in compatibility mode for: ‘option.

5. Click on ok and that should do it.

 

Check the compatibility using the link below:
