Hi Lefty,

How have you been?
It's been a long time.

In answer to your question.
Install the DosBox program,
Once that is done , Drag the executable file from the program you wish to open to the DosBox desktop icon on your computer.
If the program is locked, you will need to use "Everlock" or "Fixit" first.
This is done in the same way by first dragging it to the DosBox icon on your desktop and it will say "successful".
If you need everlock or fixit, I can help you with that.
Then you drag the executable program to the desktop icon and the program will open.
Hopefully you are using an older operating system like Windows XP or a Windows 7 Machine converted to an XP operating system. DosBox does not work well with Windows 10.
Keep in touch.....
My email is partsnut177@outlook.com
