Hmm... Looks like dosbox is looking for the MS 'share' executable. This file is included in MSDOS5+ and is not part of dosbox. I googled the problem and some had extracted the share.exe from the DOS disk but could not get it to run. Apparently it needs to be included in dosbox's autoexec.bat

[autoexec]

...

MOUNT Y C:\DOS5
SET PATH=%PATH%;Y:\
# From here you can test all the commands MSDOS 5.0, which you desire.
SHARE /L:500 /F:5100

Here is the link that I found. This user said that it installed ok but didn't work...

Good luck

Live long and prosper.

However, since it works in XP i don't care..

I am looking more closely at an DOSbox derivative called DOSbox-SVN-Daum which apparently
supports Share and if it does I will post it here:

Only thing is in the .conf file the following need to be set:

serial1=modem
serial2=modem
serial3=modem
serial4=modem

My first problem with dndbbs v2.7a running in DOSbox-SVN-Daum has been solved..

So, now, my next problem is running dndbbs v5.0a in a DOSbox for Win7+ using any
emulator has arrived with the error: Out of memory during chain.
