I work on life safety systems. Some of them have old programmers that require the use of dosbox. On our old Window 7 company issued laptops they used dosbox. I don't know how they did it, it just worked. Installed the programmers like normal and launch them as normal. However, no fancy short cuts that I can see. Just double click the exe file and it opened up dos box.
If I try to create a shortcut with dosbox, I kinda can get it to work. But the programmer requires a security dongle which I have. When dosbox opens an executes the the programmer, it says it can't detect the security key.
