How can I run MS/DOS programs on Windows/XP
Posted on 2002-04-08
I wrote a basketball statistics program using CA-Realia COBOL which runs on dos or a MS/DOS window in windows/95 - windows/me. Will it run on XP? Is there any dos emulation in XP?
As for converting it to a GUI based app, I would like to do so without having to rewrite 17000 lines of cobol code. Anyone know of a cobol compiler which creates windows-compatible programs? I know I will have to change the display and accept commands to use something like the Screenio product but I'd like to be able to leave mmost of the rest of the code alone.
See my comment below regarding downloading the program from a web site to test it on xp.
