Well, I finally could install Windows 1.0 in DOSBox with mouse support and everything, but the problem is that I can't run any app once I'm there.
The following error jumps up: "Cannot run <exectutable name>". And the icon that accompanies that message is replaced by a black box. Any help?
EDIT: If anyone has the same problem, just change the reported DOS version to 3.30 and it will work just fine!

Running Windows in DOSBox is not supported and that might be one of the shortcomings.

Man, I thought I was gonna get at least some help. Thanks still.
EDIT: Nevermind, I solved it. Setting the reported DOS version to 3.30 did the trick.
