Opening autoextracting files create with 7z (.exe) and iso and .msi , not suporting in 7za and .rar

Yes , i know the state of art of HX : japheth it's "Missing in action" ..

Mhhh: but reactOs can coexist with a freedos distro? I want mantain dos on my second notebook.. Reactos use a true dos or use an emulation like win xp?
