Running Dos Emulated Game Program inside VB Window

Im need to know if this can be done.

basically i want to create a VB program, that will have some cmd buttons which when clicked, each one will open a different emulated DOS game in a window inside the VB program. The DOS games have credits etc and are originally from actuall arcade games. I want to use this in a kiosk type applciation in the hotels here, using an Industrial Panel PC.

ANy ideas, please help, thanks

I'm assuming these are seperate executables that you want to run within your host form.

You can do this by using the SetParent API call on the windows you launch to make them conform to your form.

Good example at http://www.allapi.net/apilist/SetParent.shtml.
