if you whant make it so make it as an Extended Project, by side of reactos, if you can Do that so make an extra Project for it to make it as install/pach for reactos to support the old Dos and an real 16Bit to use old times apps with an spezial integrated hardware-emulator who can get an installed dos an "realtime-box" with vfat&some fs-support to can let run in the installed filesystem, but like EmuandCo sad and Haos too, is is this no priority to have real 16bit-system at first mus run Reactos... If you whant make an support to installing Dos with an own vm direktly for it&and installing dos to have an Dos with ems and extended Memory and maby with an loading dos by start the DOS-VM with an own Windows who run under XP mayby too ... like an Subsystem iwth emulating hardware or using the directx to have the svga-support&opengl, maby soundblasteremu to directxerkinalp wrote:If we would want, we can develop support for DOS and 16-bit apps in Win64.EmuandCo wrote:Even Win64 has a cmd window and you never will be able to run a DOS app in it.
Take this as idea to make an own Dos-VM-Project to installing in Reactos to use old Apps/Games too
like Doom, Doom2 and Tyrian, or other J&R-Games ..... without an big Computeremulator only an lightwave VM for dos to installing and open an real-dos-window with all at start who have fs-acces and take Real-Floppy or an emulating-floppy like floppy.img/install.img and CDRom-Emulator on folder, image or direckt access ;D ...
and why not named ROS-Dos-VM Project as own son/thoter-project from Reactos as own running project .... Dos it's need only 1-32MB(32mb it's manny) and an anabelity to realaccess to hardware with Administrator-password for Biosupdate or flashes for old hardware.. (to have mayby more ¿trickerd¿ possibilitys) mayby
take it as idea for you own Project to make an lightwave-dos-realtime-vm with direcktly filesystem support for Reactos / WinNT-Architecture .. maby as Service? to integrating more in the system ....
To have possibility installing as Administrator in an NT-System.
