Q: What is PocketDOS?
A: PocketDOS is a powerful virtual PC software environment for your pocket computer that allows you to run a DOS operating system and have instant access to many DOS applications* on your pocket computer, whilst simultaneously allowing the use of the pocket computer's native applications. PocketDOS also allows DOS applications to access serial ports, built-in modems, infrared ports, bluetooth devices, removable storage disks, touchscreens and shared network resources, and allows file sharing between the pocket computer's native applications and DOS applications.
(* Intel 8086/80186/80286 (real-mode only) compatible using CGA,EGA,VGA, HP-LX or text display modes)

Q: What is new in this version?
A: This version:
- Adds bluetooth serial port detection (WM6.1+)
- Improves PS/2 mouse support
- Improves built-in mouse driver compatibility
- Improves support for external keyboards
- Improves keyboard BIOS compatibility
- Adds onscreen key support for Pocket PC devices in landscape mode
- Improves landscape orientation support
- Corrects FPU flag setting when using CPU extensions
- Adds file flushing semantics to prevent file corruption on devices with delayed I/O
- Adds support for custom MODEX display modes
- Adds support for latest devices
- Includes minor bug fixes and improvements

Q: Which devices are compatible with PocketDOS?
A: All Handheld PCs, Palm-sized PCs, Pocket PCs or SmartPhones with Windows CE, Windows CE.NET or Windows Mobile and Hitachi SH3, Hitachi SH4, MIPS or ARM (StrongARM, XScale) compatible processors. All Casio PocketManagers with Windows CE and MIPS-compatible processors.

Q: Where can I download a demo copy?
A: http://www.pocketdos.com

Registered PocketDOS users can upgrade (for free) to the latest version of PocketDOS.

Any queries should be addressed to the PocketDOS support forum in the "Support" section of the PocketDOS website.

Thank you for new version but I have big trouble installing this on Storage Card. After installation and reset my htc touch pro2 I cannot access to that external memory. This look like program brick phone... In previous version I not encountered that problem.
This new mouse function "resize to screen" should be great (I expect good work under GEM system) but I cannot test it now because I must reinstall all device after losing access to Storage Card...

Dear Sir,

It appears as if you may have forced the installation of the "PocketDOS DOS file system driver". This driver should not be installed on your device, and removing it should resolve the issues you're having.

Thank you for your interest.

Dear Sir,

The current version of PocketDOS (v1.12.3) is backwards-compatible with all drivers from previous versions of PocketDOS and XT-CE.

Thank you for your interest.

Hello and sorry for my poor english.
I try to install PocketDOS 11.23 from my PC. After click to Setup, there is nothing to install.
It works fine with the 11.01 version (also the unlock code). So I will use the old version for the moment waiting for your answer.

Just in complément : no the unlock code dosn't works (démo version at the beginning) but when I write the code, it says : PocketDOS in unlocked ? I will see if in use, the demo screen appears.
Thanks for your help. Barbara

Dear Sir,

Which device are you trying to install PocketDOS to? And which download are you using?

Please try using one of the other DOS versions available for PocketDOS. If you receive the 'demo version' message after you have unlocked PocketDOS, it is most likely because you are trying to use Datalight ROM-DOS when the license you purchased does not include a license to ROM-DOS.

Thank you for your custom.

When I try to play TIM, it always exits itself. Next time I run PocketDOS, it asks if I will run the program in safemode. What's going on? How can I solve this problem?
