New guy with question about old DOS app

Guest 5shot

Recommended Posts



I have an old DOS stand alone .exe program that runs with Windows if you ALLOW it to and IGNORE the caution about its 16 bit nature. I wrote it and have updated it so it works. Windows doesn't let you print to LPT1 so I have the program create a .txt file that can be printed later. It also doesn't use a mouse. :)


So here's my question.

Will such a program run on the new phones???


Here's a link to the readme file and to the app itself if your interested and would like to try it. It's FREEWARE. To unpack it, put it in a folder and change the .xex to .exe.

program - http://www.pointshooting.com/expenses.xex


I'm not a geek, just and old timer who plods along.


Best regards.
