ConEmu build: 180626 x32/x64
OS version: Windows 10 x32/x64

Subject says it all. I installed DosBox 0.74 in the pre-existing ConEmu folder, so its executable sits in D:\Software\Emulators\ConEmu\ConEmu\DosBox\DOSBox.exe, but the checkbox in the Features settings page stays empty. Can you tell me where ConEmu is looking when it determines whether or not to enable DosBox support?

The following files are expected in the folder

  • DosBox.exe
  • DosBox.conf (you may just make a copy of DosBox_Sample.conf)
  • Also seems like files SDL.dll and SDL_net.dll are required by DosBox.exe itself, but ConEmu does not check for their existence

ConEmu should show info message like this:

DosBox files must be located here:
D:\Software\Emulators\ConEmu\ConEmu\DosBox\

  1. Copy files DOSBox.exe, SDL.dll, SDL_net.dll
  2. Create of modify configuration file DOSBox.conf

Hmm, interesting. When starting DosBox from its Start Menu shortcut I get a message saying that it has loaded its configuration file from %LOCALAPPDATA%\DosBox\dosbox-0.74.conf, not from a configuration file in the installation folder. Perhaps ConEmu should check in that location (too)?

Anyhow, I have copied the configuration file into the ConEmu\DosBox folder and now the box is checked. Thanks for the prompt reply!

ConEmu expects conf file inside its folder because there may be special rules for drive mapping
