Use VM to Play Old DOS Games
Do you have some old DOS games that no longer play on your system? I found a way to resurrect these old classics and play them again. As you may recall a while back, I introduced the VM Player as a way to run Firefox in an effort to provide total protection on the Internet. You can use this same idea to run DOS. I have found three solutions:
- Download Microsoft's Virtual PC and load FreeDOS or another DOS. (Virtual PCs only provide the hardware visualization, you still need to provide the OS.)
- Use the VM Player and run the Nostalgia appliance. This appliance comes pre-installed with OpenDOS and 8 old DOS games.
- Use the VM Player and run the FreeDOS appliance (beta).
