MS-DOS Player 2014-11-19 (Announce)

The latest version of MS-DOS Player, an open-source DOS emulator for 32 and 64-bit Windows, was released a few days ago (2014-11-19). It has many features including emulations for both 80286 and 80386 CPUs as well as support for LFN API. Unlike DOSBox, it is command-line based, but during my testing I have found that it certainly works better than ReactOS's NTVDM for example. Both binary and source code are downloadable from:

Beware it uses MESS License which is GPLv2 incompatible.

Where does it say it uses MESS License? The COPYING.txt file inside the "source" directory seems to only mention GNU GPL I think?

Interesting that it seems to make no mention of MESS license, even though the word "MAME" (not "MESS") does appear somewhere in the doc..

I found this to prove the source code status that I knew of is outdated. ;)

Nice find!

"As of current SVN, MAME's i386 is dual-licensed 3-clause BSD, which is fully GPL compatible. Have fun :-)"

BTW, the webpage hasn't been updated, but the .ZIP is different. So now it's basically version "2014-12-06" because the binaries were recompiled, not to mention additional binaries for "i486".

MS-DOS Player -- new homepage!

It appears that he has moved to http://takeda-toshiya.my.coocan.jp/msdos/index.html .

In addition, although it still lists as "6/24/2016", he recently updated the MSDOS.ZIP (binaries and sources) on "7/30/2016".
