    There is one radio the ICOM M710 that supposedly to program it for amateur radio you need to use DOS and at the maximum for Windows would be 95. The program is out there off and on on a diskette.

    I think you can use Windows 10 for DOS but then that does not work because of odd ball conflicts with serial ports. (and endless other tales)

    Have an extra W95 around ?

    If one might think I am creating an odd subject and solution as to the M710 for amateur radio ?

    Just old, out of date, and and not computer literate. :)

    If you are using a 32 bit windows, you do not have to do anything, Just click the EXE, BATCH, or COM file and it will run just fine on any version of windows.

    If you have a 64 bit version, most likely you do, you need to download a app called VDOS.

    Step 1: Download and install vDos. Install it in C:\vDos, its recommended to install vDos inside your Documents folder. In this way the files will be backed up and protected.

    Step 2: Load vDos, and you’ll get a DOS environment in a windows. Press any key to run a database program. Press 0 to exit that program and get to the old DOS command prompt. From there you can launch any DOS program or run any DOS command.

    Nothing to it.

    While you are at it, tap the Time Button on your VCR and it will quit flashing 12:00 at you. :D
