I may have a way to use my v11 for Dos in Win7 64 bit- but question

After experimenting with Microsoft's various emulation environments (not good), I happened to download and install Dosbox on my win7 64 bit machine. EVERY SINGLE ONE OF MY ANCIENT DOS PROGRAMS WORK!!! Formtool, Express Publisher, and many others. I've installed over a dozen old programs and they all just simply work GREAT!!

Including things like printing and reading and writing to usb floppy drives on the win7 machine(s)... I have two or three.

Anyway, I copied my Peach 11 multiuser (previously works great on dos/win98/winxp) over to the dosbox area of my win7 64bit machine, switch over to dosbox, type "netpeach"...... and I get the Share error msg.

I know how to fix that in dos/win98/winxp etc, but dosbox, being a sort of sub-envirnonment, is posing a challenge.

Has anyone worked with dosbox? Clues on how/where to get the share message in to something resembling the autoexec area (or wherever it normally goes.

Besides being free, Dosbox is so so cool..... you can even set it to emulate any number of ancient/modern machine processor speeds.

If I can get Peach 11 happening here, this will be so fantastic.
