This is a brand new thread, designed to replace the original XP compatibility list which has gotten somewhat untidy. A...

Here, download this copy of AUTOEXEC.NT, backup the one you already have, then copy that one into the system32 folder. See if that helps.

If Sun ever feels like making a Virtual Machine for DOS (not sure if one already exists), then that will make DOS that much more useful, considering the massive number of apps already for JAVA.

That looks like you might have corrupted XP/DOS configuration files.

I've never dealt with them specifically before so I'm not sure how to help you with those in particular, unless you reformat and reinstall Windows thus resetting them back to their default settings.

DOSBox is an emulator, you can try that if you already haven't. http://dosbox.sourceforge.net Otherwise you can right-click the game's EXE file, click Properties, tinker with the settings there, maybe you might change the right setting to get it working. If you describe exactly what happened when yo...

Use the first one (ESS). From personal experience, ESS tends to be a decent sound card. As for your other question, it would appear that DOS music in the MIDI/Adlib format is not supported. Unless the NT/2000/XP MIDI driver supports DOS games, you will not hear MIDI-based music. I hate to be picky, ...

Soleau Software out of business?

http://www.soleau.com That gives the usual 404 (page not found) error. While it is possible that their server is just shagged up temporarily, but the quick and blunt 404 error looks like Soleau is gone altogether. Another one bites the dust I guess...
