...XP doesn't really use DOS, but a command prompt emulator instead.. Have you tried using one of the DOS box programs on XP..? It should allow you to play your game. As just an example, see the link below:
Hope this helps.
First of all, hi to everybody.
I have a small problem and I am not sure if it can be fixed.
I downloaded an old DOS game, and when I start it, this error shows up:
"The system cannot open COM1 port requested by the application."
Can this be somehow fixed? I am using Windows XP.
