DOSBox is installed on an employees laptop at my office. She says that the program launches but doesn't work like it did on her Windows 10 laptop. We're on an enterprise domain. She uses the program for a modeling program for her job.
As an IT technician, I am unsure as to the solution as it does launch, it had previously operated on Windows 10. I have checked settings etc.
Has anyone else managed to get DOSBox to work on Windows 11?

0.74-3 works well here.

Actually this emulator looks like fun
What was brought to my attention is an old hydrology program that requires a DOS emulator to run. It needs a specific config in DOSBox to run, and I inherited this mess.
It's a longshot, but if anyone has experience with THWELLS, please let me know

So far I'm having no problems with older programs as they install in the x64 version of Win11 but we may see some issues where x86-only programs won't work on Win11 since there is no x86 version of the OS [that I know of].
