Reply To: Windows 95


Hi, been following the tut on Youtube, on getting Win95 up and running on Magic Dosbox. I was stuck at the part when to convert the vhd to an img file.

Seems the process has changed some in the last 5 years.

1.If you use the latest version of Oracle VM, for some reason, you can not even install a virtual win95 vhd. You need to downgrade to at least version 5.2 and before June or July I believe, after that, they will drop support for it.
2. C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox>VBoxManage.exe “C:\Users\****\VirtualBox VMs\win95\win95.vhd” d:\test\win95img –format raw was the only way I could convert the vhd to an .img file. Maybe it has changed with Windows 10.

I managed to get it to work, but I have issues with the mouse not following ie in Dex Mode, the computer mouse trails far from the emulated mouse in win95, is there a way to fix this, or is this an artifact of using Dex Mode?
