Execite a program in true DOS

5 posts in this topic

:) I need one script AUTOIT that makes the Windows 98 to enter in "DOS" true (not a window "DOS") and execute a DOS program.

Thanks to all.

What do you mean by "TRUE DOS".

Do you mean Full screen? Or do you mean rebooting the machine and justloading the command prompt?

If full screen, look into sending ALT + ENTER to the window.

If the other, then you will have to get autoit to create a batch file, add it to your autoexec.bat, and reboot your computer.

Hope this helps

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Last system that supported Boot into DOS was Windows 95.

May need a DOS boot disk to do this with Windows 98.

On my 98 box it has an option "Restart in MS-DOS mode" in the close dialog
