DOSBox is a DOS-emulator that uses the SDL-library which makes DOSBox very easy to port to different platforms. DOSBox emulates CPU:286/386 realmode/protected mode, Directory FileSystem/XMS/EMS, Tandy/Hercules/CGA/EGA/VGA/VESA graphics, a SoundBlaster/Gravis Ultra Sound card for excellent sound compatibility with older games. There is also a configuration GUI frontend.

DOSBox is an added value for OS/2: The operating system indeed, already natively supports virtualization of the Operating System DOS and Microsoft Windows 3.x graphic environment, and almost all of the software written for these systems/environments is quietly executable with native OS/2 technology.

This software is distributed as compressed package. You have to download and manually install it; if prerequisites are required, you will have to manually install them too.

Manual installation

Available both as ZIP and WarpIN package:

  • download the ZIP package to temporary directory and unpack it to destination folder;

Dosbox/2 v. 0.74 (WarpIN installer, 17/3/2019, Jochen Schäfer) Readme/What's new
Building DOSBOX with OS/2 Required: - GCC 3.x. I used the Innotek GCC 3.3.5 compiler. - Latest SDL development package. Optional: - libncurses. If you want to use the internal DOSBOX debugger, you'll need this lib. The existing pre-built binaries will not work with GCC 3.3.5. You have to do it yourself. It's tough, but doable. To build use the included makefile.os2. The following targets exist. all: Builds dosbox.exe. dosbox*.exe: If you use the name of one of the different binary versions, it's built for you. The names are dosbox.exe, dosboxd.exe, dosboxhd.exe being the non-debugging binaries without and with internal DOSBOX debugger support (dosboxd and dosboxhd). The debugging binaries add a suffix of "_d" to the filename, e.g. dosboxd_d.exe being the debugging version including the normal DOSBOX debugger. package: Builds all versions of the dosbox binary. clean: Removes all binaries and object files. cleanpackage: Removes the object files, but not the binaries.
