Introducing vDosPlus: a general-purpose DOS emulator (Announce)

vDosPlus is general-purpose non-gaming DOS emulator for both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows, based on vDos and DOSBox. In 64-bit Windows there is no more NTVDM, so vDosPlus will function as a replacement (but it will work in 32-bit Windows too, with many enhancements not found in NTVDM).

Unlike DOSBox, which is specifically designed for DOS gaming, vDosPlus is specifically designed for running non-gaming DOS applications. Compared with vDos, while vDosPlus has all its features such as built-in 4DOS 8.00 shell which provides powerful command-line functionalities and printing to Windows-only (GDI) printers, vDosPlus has many unique features too, such as tighter integration with Windows, enhanced keyboard, mouse and display support (the feature list is long).

Once known as vDos-lfn (because its initial focus was long filename or LFN support), now with a lot more features vDosPlus becomes a project of its own to act as a general-purpose DOS emulator. It is based on mature projects and also well tested by for example the XyWrite community, so it should be considered stable as well. The home page of vDosPlus is now available at the following address, where you can find the latest versions and further information too:

The vDosPlus discussion board is now up too at the SourceForge site:

https://sourceforge.net/p/vdosplus/discussion/

Please feel free to test it and leave any feedback and other comments, either here or in the vDosPlus discussion board. Thanks!
