Hello all,

Hoping for some help, when I mount my c drive and try to run my selected program I get this message: This program requires microsoft windows. I am using my laptop which is running windows 10 currently.

Thank you for any help!

It seems that your program is not a DOS program.

If that's a 16 bit Windows program, you'll have to install Windows 3.x on dosbox and then run your program.

If that's a 32 bit program, you should be able to run it from Windows 10 (but maybe you'll need some compatibility fixes).
