Hi, quick question. My flight training center wants to know if it is possible to run DOS 6.0 or later on a new XP machine. They use DOS for this program that logs flight time, payments, ETC. This is because the old machine they have is over 10 years old, and they don't want it to break down one day. I know you can run command prompt, but is DOS different? By the way, he has DOS 6.0 on a bunch of floppys.

Sorry for any inconvenience I cause...

DOS 6 only supports FAT file system and WinXP only support FAT32 and NTFS. Therefore I do not think it is possible.

The DOS application may run in WinXP but you will have to test it. If the app doesn't work in WinXP, find the *.exe file for the app, right click and select properties, then go to the "Compability" tab and set to be Win95 compatible. This may or may not work, but like I said, you will have to test it.
