but what about those of us with old business apps that need something like this? I have been successfully using dbase IV on dosbox on win7 32 & 64bit machines now for over a year w/o any problems.... until this last week or so; it is beginning to over right the last entry in one of my open dbf files.... not sure why..... maybe something to do with the multiuser environment not locking the file while someone else in entering data and someone else looks something up in it.... we used to get 'database in use - wait' but maybe not anymore....... maybe dosbox .74 does not support this locking anymore? we didnt seem to have this problem say 2+ months ago and older......

should we try going back a version?

Old business apps user that want to use dosbox anyway are pretty much on their own...
Best check what changed in the last two weeks. Dosbox didn't
