If your legacy DOS applications refuse to run in a text NT console window using the builtin NTVDM emulator, your only choice is to download a virtual machine as MS Virtual PC or open source VirtualBox (both are free) then setup a DOS environment and run the programs inside the virtual PC.

The process is easier to do than to explain an results are worth of try. You can use a FreeDOS copy if you miss a set of MS-DOS diskettes to install the guest environment.

Or just boot in DOS. Your app will run much faster.

If at first you don't succeed, you're about average.

Maybe a bit faster (Virtual PC is a virtualizer not an emulator) but surely without hard disk access if NTFS formatted (and the same for MS-DOS if FAT32).
