Click Start, click Run, type cmd in the box, click OK. It is a DOS box, but you won't be happy with the size.

Hi, experts can i get a win95 emu -to run on XP. -for some retro gaming? Regards Jn.


Hello, by retro gaming do you mean classic dos games? If so then try D-Fend Reloaded. It comes with the Dosbox emulator and is quite easy to setup and use. Download it here:

http://dfendreloaded.sourceforge.net/Download.html

Once installed, click extras and then open games folder, place your games here. Then run the game setup wizard by pressing F3.

For old windows games, try running them in compatibility mode. Right-click on the program executable, choose properties, click the compatibility tab and pick windows 95 or 98.

Have fun, thanks for using FixYa

It wont install on windows xp


Trying installing the game in compatibility mode by right clicking on the EXE file on the medium used to start the install for the game and click properties. A window should pop up with a tab called Compatibility. Under compatibility mode click the check box to "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" In the drop down menu click Windows 95. Then try to run the install again.

In order to run old DOS games on Vista, you will need to use a DOS emulator. One of the best DOS emulators that you can download and use for free is DOSBox.

Here is the link for online instructions for setting up DOSBox:

I have it almost installed but before i can play the game my screen changes resloution and magnifies my windows then i get an alert box telling me that the organ trail game cant be installed then it closes...


Ahh i see.... Starting with windows 2000/XP. Windows no longer supports DOS... Im kinda sad about that myself D= but it doesnt end there for you my friend. Organ trail is a great game.

My tip is for you to get a program called DOS box from source forge. Simple google DOS BOX. Install the program and run the program from within dosbox. If you dont know how to run dos box simply drag the EXE you are trying to run into the window. Give it a try and it will work trust me. GL in the game....

How can I run Caesar II on windows vista


You can run it on vista, though you need a DOS emulator, for which i recommend DOSBOX.
download this, make sure you have a folder for all your caesar II files in your C: directory and call it caesar2, then run dosbox

once it is running type in this order in dosbox:

mount c c:\caesar2
c:
call c2

a new page will come up and tell you its not a valid drive, choose the second option in the list by pressing spacebar. caesar II should then start running

Hal.dll error after booting


HAL - Hardware Abstraction Layer (hal.dll)
HAL is Microsoft’s abbreviation for the Hardware Abstraction Layer, the technology and drivers that let the Windows NT, 2000, and XP operating systems communicate with your PC’s hardware. HAL is one of several features–along with the NT file system (NTFS) that replaced the much less secure MS-DOS–that make NT-based operating systems more secure and reliable than Windows 95, 98, and Me.
HAL.dll prevents applications from directly accessing your PC’s system memory, CPU, or hardware devices (such as video and sound cards)–a method that can prevent many device conflicts and crashes. Unfortunately, HAL.dll sometimes also slows or stops DOS games and programs, which need to load their own memory managers or control hardware directly for better performance.
With HAL.dll in the way, developers must rewrite or even abandon their older software in favor of newer, HAL-compatible versions. Microsoft has pressured hardware makers to provide or support technologies such as MMX, DirectX, and 3D graphics language OpenGL, all of which allow fast but indirect access to the advanced high-performance features of video, sound, and CPU hardware. Such access also makes for a better visual experience when using Windows for Web and productivity applications; improved graphics performance is evident all over Windows XP’s new user interface.
XP also offers some new compatibility-mode features that let you run programs meant to run under earlier operating systems, but, frankly, most DOS-based and even some Windows-based games simply won’t work with the new OS.

I need to download a program that requires windows and my computer says the program wont run in dos mode how do i get it to work?


if the program requires windows that means it was design to work with windows and not with DOS.. you may want to get an old version of the program that will actually run under DOS.. usually you may be able to do the opposite which is to run DOS program on windows.

if possible try to get a DOS version of the program you are trying to run, or better.. upgrade your operating sytem so you can run your program and possibly other DOS programs.

post the program you are looking to download and confirm what operation system you're running and I'll try to look for it with you.
