Does anybody knows how can you run a Win32 app on dosemu.
The application involves opening up a new dos-shell.
Since the application was originally written on VC++ but is only console based application where it starts with opening a new shell.

Does it require recompilation to run dosemu i.e., dosemu would not be able to understand that exe.

when i try to run this app as on ms-dos i.e on console it says "this program cannot run in dos-mode
"

With that error message, NO.

That message is indicating you need to be running under a Win32 operating system, even if you are running in console mode.

Dosemu is a pure dos mode operating system.
