DOSBox-X is a free and cross-platform DOS emulator for running DOS games and programs.

But it's also a platform for running DOS applications, including emulating the environments to run Windows 3.x, 9x and ME and software written for those versions of Windows. DOSBox-X aims to be a complete DOS emulation package that is both fully-featured and easy to use, covering all pre-2000 DOS and Windows 9x based system scenarios. 


While they have made efforts to maintain and improve the emulation accuracy of the hardware and many more ways to configure the DOS virtual machine, they also try to strike a balance between emulation quality, speed, and usability, including improving the out-of-the-box experience for new users who want to run DOS programs or games, as well as implementing emulation that is accurate enough to make retro-programming possible with confidence the program will run properly on actual hardware.
