DOSBox-X 0.83.10 also supports file locking and other share functions. It is recommended to set “nocachedir=true” and “file access tries=3”. File operations like LFN are supported by DOSBox-X (ver=7.1 or lfn=true) but not vDos.
OK - questions - what does LFN stand for? Also, why do you say the vDos will not work when it has been recommended and verbally confirmed via other posts that it can handle file locks?
I said “vDos will not work”? What did you mean? Re-read my message, I was saying that DOSBox-X 0.83.10 also supports file locking just like vDos. So just for the purpose of file locking, both of them will work. However, vDos does not support other file operations like LFN (which stands for long file names) which were also mentioned above, although they are separate file-operation features. DOSBox-X did not support file-locking back in 2018 so only vDos was recommended at that time, but DOSBox-X is completely free and open-source whereas vDos is no longer so and will show nag screens in networked environments unless it is registered.
