This Program cannot be run in dos mode

Postby vish2648 » 2019-2-13 @ 04:15

Hello,
I am trying to interface microprocessor to display "FIRE" on seven segment through MASM. In order to establish communication from PC, I am using AllowIo.exe to establish communication. I have used the following command

-- AllowIo 0xd800 FIRE.EXE

If I execute the following command I am getting the error "This Program cannot be run in dos mode"

That's the error message you get when you try to run a Windows program in DOS.

Looks like the application is fine with Windows 3.1, which is today available at ebay only.

DOSBox is for DOS games.
1. that program is not a game
2. it's not for DOS either as you can see from the error message
(3. use DOSBox 0.74-2 but that does not change 1.and 2.)
