I installed DOSBox, but the "\" shows up as "]" so I cannot specify directories. Any ideas would be appreciated. I am using Vista.

Hi. DOSBox is working fine under Vista. But its impossible to install it on computer (installer fault) without administrator rights! Please provide alternative installer or even better provide users with simple .zip package with DOSBox (like in few years ago).


DOSBox works fine on my PC. But I cant install a frontend/GUI, because there is no config-file, which is required by DOSShell. Config -writeconf <config.cfg> doesnt create the specified file. i. e. I cant find it! !There is no AppData-folder at my Users-Folder ('ApplicationData'-folder is only filled with another 'Microsoft'-folder). What can I do?

I'm using Vista, and DOSBox works fine until I make it full screen, at which point it grinds to a practical halt. increasing cycles does not appear to help much. this didn't happen in XP, at least not as far as I could notice (is it common?). I have to run everything in a tiny portion of the screen.

try a different output in the configuration file of DOSBox (in the startmenu there is a link Edit Configuration)
