Hello All,
I just installed DOS box and am having difficulty creating a c directory to run this exe app for a video brick processor i recently purchased. I must preface this by admitting I have next to no skill in a dos environment.
My first command is mount c . Well I have tried numerous commands to open up this exe to install the control software for this video processor.
I type mount c home/philipb
and mount c users/philip/downloads/brick1_software folder/EXE
and it still keeps telling me know directory exists.
Anyone have clear concise input on how to mount a directory so i can get this software cooking and rock some video installations?
Thanks.

Well , if i remember correctly it should go as :

mount c /Users/Philipb/xx

What i do is usually create some special folder for dos games in the documents

so would go as

mount c /Users/Philipb(don't know if you use upercase on your user ... just type it as it is)/Documents/DOS .

Hope you can get it to work , cheers

NOTE: Merged duplicate threads (please do not cross-post).

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
