    Run MSDOS programs under windows 7

    Has anyone had any luck running MSDOS programs under Windows 7. I have an old bridge scoring program that runs under XP but not Vista or Windows 7

    Doesn't it run on XP Mode?

    Windows 7 configured with XP mode installed is your best bet. No 100% guarantee though.

    Try using DOSbox (http://www.dosbox.com/). I use it to run my old DOS games such as Warcraft II and Incredible Machine.
