If the program has setting that is required from dos, those setting are going to be in Autoexec.bat and config.sys.
Most settings are going to be setting to increase more Conventional mem, Extentended mem, Expanded mem

Therefore you can transfer those settings to your
C:\windows\system32\autoexec.nt and C:\windows\system32\config.nt

By default any dos window execute these 2 files before running an application.

I hope that helped!

I had tried adding some settings in the config.nt file, but was still having a problem running the DOS program.  I ended up making a DOS partition, and setting the system up for dual-boot.  Thanks for the suggestion.
