I have quite a few games that require DOSBOX.
They come from GOG, Steam, and other sources.
They all install a separate copy of DOXBOX, many of which are very old versions.

Is there a way to set things up so these games can run from a single up-to-date installation of DOXBOX?

I'd create a symbolic link with mklink /s everywhere you want to target that single version of dosbox.exe.

I think that is pretty much the only way to go
