Re: installing SL in Dosbox

I asked one of the Authors for Dosbox if Share.exe was going to be supported. he was brisk in his reply with a "No" and that was pretty much his answer.

The fix is a locking code update that passes the file locks to the host OS, ala dosemu. It's a not inconsequential task, though looking at the dosemu...

Re: installing SL in Dosbox

share is not supported on redirected drives, only on disk images. This limits the utility of dosbox, and is why dosemu on linux is a superior performer for these kind of things.
