Here is a list of every article for every application that is known to work or not work on DOSBox. This list is naturally incomplete, but over time, as users take the time to check on their favorite application, this list will help new users understand what they can expect to happen when they try to get their favorite application to work. Software applications are not the primary focus of DOSBox, and the needs of games tend to receive a higher degree of attention by the developers over the needs of an application. Although having said that, most applications work fine in DOSbox.
