Miniatures of DOS applications running in a vDos window.
Click one to view larger screenshots. The window can be set at many sizes, as long the text is readable (a minimal font size is enforced), and it fits the Windows desktop (maximum font size).
DataPerfect: Testdrive demo program.
FoxPro: No close/exit if files are open!
Quicken: Print to any Windows printer.
dBase V: Selecting text to copy to Windows Clipboard.
Control a remote DOS application in your browser (doesn't work in old MS Edge versions).
It’s not that straightforward to select adequate examples of DOS apps running in vDos. I can hardly publish one, with actual/real data.
The remote 'server' running the webserver and vDos (running the DOS apps) is a modest non-dedicated 64-bit Windows 10 laptop. It's certainly no local PC: Startup and Exit of DOS apps take a few seconds, screen updates can lag behind a bit, though they always do with web applications.
The DOS apps start and run live, so someone might have messed things up. The apps and data are only daily restored to their initial setup.
The window decorations are created by the webserver, and somewhat old fashioned (XP styled).
Web applications have a common handicap: Printing. Didn't want to go into the trouble: You can’t print.
Initial: This is what you get when vDos is installed.
Alpha4: A demo of this database program.
Clarion3: The IDE of this database program.
FiAd: An ancient accounting program of my own. Of little use w/o data, worse if you don’t speak Dutch…
FoxProX: An interactive demo of FoxPro. Pretty awesome this is all done in FoxPro itself.
WP 6.2: WordPerfect with some vDos extensions.
YouTube video’s.
