I saw the thread on Deep Thought and thought I would ask here, because Deep Thought didn't answer my questions.
I tried using DOSBox on Ubuntu and I got a "locked files" error. The program ran but when it tried to access the database it stopped working.
I was able to mount the DOSBox to the local and a network drive with out any errors.
I even tried to copy the database over to the local drive and only mount the local drive, but each time I got a "locked files" error.
I then loaded DOSBox up on to a 64bit Win7 system and got the same error message.
The program I'm running is an old DOS program called Yardi.
It's very simplistic and you can copy folders from any drive or folder to another source and then run the program. No need to install.
You always need to manually enter the database location because it doesn't listen to the network for it.
