    Accepted Solution

    If you have 64-bit Windows 7, then DOS support is unavailable.  Otherwise, if you have the Ultimate, Enterprise, or Professional edition of Windows 7 32-bit, you can try it under XP mode.  If even that is not available to you, please see this Previously Answered Question:
