Serious apologies if this question has been answered elsewhere but I have scoured the internet and have not found one. If it has been asked please direct me to the solution before closing this thread.
Anyway, my friend has DOSBOX 0.74-3 installed on windows 10 with it booting off a hard disk image running MS-DOS 6.22. I am aware that many of DOSBOX's functions do not work once booted into a disk image but my friend wants to have that same auto-quit functionality like the dosbox.exe -exit "program path" feature. Is it possible to tell DOSBOX to quit within this MS-DOS 6.22 environment? Is there some known way to crash this version of dosbox to get it to quit that way? I would prefer to not force him to download a fork of dosbox since he gets frustrated somewhat easily, but emailing him a small batch, com or exe file to inject into his disk image would be nice since he already installed a bunch of games to the image already.
I have tried the -exit command to no avail.
I have attempted to use ACPI shutdown calls with some old assembly programs to no avail.
I have read all FAQs and wikis for DOSBOX, googled around and have asked in some discord servers to no avail.
Thank you in advance.
