DosBox Windows 10 Problems?

Postby BigDogDos » 2016-7-14 @ 09:47

Has anyone got DosBox V74. to work on Windows 10 32bit or 64bit ?
Without checking I have updated to windows 10 32bit on a Linx tablet and now DosBox crashes, No Doom2 Aggrrrr.
It runs for a second, shows some error that I dont have time to read before the windows closes.

Have tried most fixes as shown on:
http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/sear ... dows_10//1

But still no good.
Will some ace programmer be updating DosBox to sort this anomaly shortly, as I cant live with just windows. I like software that dose what I tell it.

Away to try a clean boot, but even it it works (Doubtful) its a pain in the butt.

For me, DOSBox v74 works fine under Windows 10 Pro x64.

Did you try selecting different output options in Dosbox.conf, e.g. opengl, ddraw etc.?

PS: There's a dedicated Dosbox forum.

Tried the opengl & ddraw, seams the same.
Is there any way of keeping the dosbox windows open so I can see what it says the error is ? its only staying open for a second.

This is (probably) not a Windows 10 problem; this is a tablet problem. It is well established at this point that the version of SDL used by DOSBox does not cooperate with tablets.

Numerous threads have been started about this already. As Mr. Qbix suggested, one of several solutions is to plug in a mouse.

I had this problem on my Dell tablet running windows 10 32 bit. If you have a mouse plugged in before opening DOSBox it works. But to cut to the chase, one bright spark (not me) found that replacing the sdl.dll file in the DOSBox directory with sdl.dll version 1.2.11.0 the problem is solved Searching for "sdl.dll version 1.2.11.0" will give you loads of places to grab the file from. I renamed the original one just in case I need it back
