What is dbDOS™ PRO 3?
dbDOS PRO 3 is the fastest, 100% faster than prior versions, and most reliable way to enable virtually any DOS based application on Microsoft’s Windows® XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, and now Windows 8. It includes support for both 32 and 64-bit versions of these operating systems.
dbDOS™ PRO 3 is specifically engineered to work best with dBASE CLASSIC™, the re-bundled version of the last release of the world class version of dBASE V for MS-DOS. However, dbDOS™ PRO 3 works well with dBASE III+, dBASE IV (Version(s) 1, 2, 3), and as stated before dBASE V for MSDOS. dbDOS™ PRO 3 will work with any of the older MS-DOS based programs. We have customers using Lotus 1, 2, 3, Word Perfect 5.1, FoxPro, and many other classic applications. dbDOS™ PRO 3 is the easiest way to keep your mission critical MS-DOS based applications up and running for years to come.
