I would like to run a progam (.bat file) in DOSBox, but it requires a DOS PATH.
Is it possible to set DOS PATH like in autoexec.bat in a normal DOS environment? Example: Path = C:\Windows; C:\Windows\Command;C:\Vet;
Or is there a work around of this problem?

I believe there is some confusion because real DOS has a PATH command that shows or sets the path, so you can use "set path=c:\something" or simply "path c:\something" (without the equal sign).

DOSBox does not have the PATH command, so use the first form, with the SET command.
