MS-DOS 6.22 is free to download (legally) but I cannot find it. I need it for specific programs to run.

Microsoft's website has links to a single setup file, but that's no good - I'm looking for the links to download:

- DISK 1

- DISK 2

- DISK 3

I already have the DOS 6.22 bootdisk, but I'm having no luck in finding the actual OS.

Thanks in advance.

I know this is against the post and all, but i am really curious to find out what you want to run on it. When you get your copy.

Never used eMule.

95/98 - I don't have those operating system. I use XP-Pro, and all I need are these 3x MS-DOS 6.22 setup disks.

Run:

We have an old piece of legacy software that is dependanct on DOS as a client operating system. Upgrades are not an option due to finances etc. etc. and I'm looking for this OS as a backup disk because I realised we don't have a backup of it.

Better late than never but...

i was searching for dos 6.22 wen i found this tread and i think i got a Solusion for DjmUK's problem.. he probbly has a solution but... other can use this info

i made a lidel guide how to turn the setup form the folloing link into a 3 disk setup

http://download.microsoft.com/download/dos...N-US/stepup.exe

- Open up stepup.exe in winrar extract the files to a new map

- Open Setup.Bat in Notepad, Delete the following code, And save the file

REM  This batch file expands the MS-DOS 6.22 Step-Up files and

REM  then runs MS-DOS 6.22 Setup.


if %1'==RESTART' goto restart

if not exist 1MSDOS62.EXE goto missing


REM ----- Do expansion of a split archive -----

:multi

md C:\stepup

if not exist c:\stepup\nul goto dir_err


REM Copy this batch file to the hard disk and transfer control to

REM it so user can change floppies.

- Copy the new Setup.bat, 1MSDOS62.EXE, DBLCDESC.TXT, DESCRIP.TXT, NEW4_622.TXT, and README.NOW to a 1.44 MB disk (Name it: MSdos 6.22 setup 1/3)

- Swap the 1.44 MB floppy disk for a empty 1.44 MB floppy disk (name it: MSdos 6.22 setup 2/3)

- Copy 2MSDOS62.EXE to the floppy disk

- Swap the 1.44 disk for another empty 1.44 MB floppy disk (name it: MSdos 6.22 setup 3/3)

- Copy 3MSDOS62.EXE to the floppy disk

Now you created a 3 Disk setup

Do it really need to be MS-DOS? Because you can try FreeDOS. It's mainly the same thing, and it's also free. If you want to give it a try, you can find it here

You guys obviously have no idea that almost any manufacturing business still heavily depends on MS-DOS.

That's actually an interesting fact, and I'm surprised their are no newer alternatives. For example, all the computers in my school run Windows XP Pro, except for the Computer Aided Design one used by the engineering department which still runs Windows 95 purely for the reason that the software relys on DOS.

How similar & compatible is MSDOS compared to FreeDOS?

They say it's 100% compatible.

:yes:

Even programmable mills that come out today still use DOS and software written for DOS :whistle: .

The link is directly to a Microsoft server, therefore you can safely assume that Microsoft has no issue with you downloding a copy.

Either that, or someone at MS messed up.... I doubt its that though as the link is still live after 12 months...

It is not entirely 100% compatable with MS-DOS.

The link in question points to an update for licensed users of certain previous versions of MS-DOS. Therefore, using it as a full version is illegal.
