Fun with vDOS (Emulation)

Thanks for your post. Regarding long file name (LFN) support, it is for sure that LFN drivers like DOSLFN won't load in DOSBox or vDOS, since they are not real DOS environments and also prevent direct disk access. Sadly, it also seems that the vDOS author (josschaars) is not willing to add LFN support at all. However, given that I have actually added long file name support to DOSBox myself last month (see post at:, and that vDOS is a fork of DOSBox, it may not be very difficult to port LFN-related code from DOSBox to vDOS, so that vDOS would support LFN as well, similar to a real DOS environment with DOSLFN loaded.
