Can i really Run DOS programs in Windows 7?
« on: November 23, 2016, 01:13:56 PM »

Here's the general rule:

If the DOS program ran in XP,
it will probably run in a 32-bit version of Windows 7.
But no DOS program can ever run in a 64-bit version of Windows 7.

64bit processing with larger then 4GB of RAM
DOS/Legacy compatibility

So, if you have a system with 4GB OF RAM or less, and you are interested in running DOS + programs for the old Win9X operating systems, running Windows 7 in 32bit mode has an advantage! but if u have a i7 Computer with 16GB OF RAM obviously u wont be running 32 bit windows 7. both are good, and applicable for different situations!

its a trade off.. is it worth it to your scenario?
if u have less then 4GB RAM.. maybe not
if u use mostly 32 bit plugins + programs .. probably not
