fasm and fasmd fail to run in vDosPlus

The fatal error message is JMP: illegal descriptor type 9

and vDosPlus terminates.

I'm using vDosPlus and cwsdpmi on Windows 64-bit.

rem This is essentially the DOS autoexec.bat.
rem =========================================
rem vDosPlus has one additional command: USE.
rem The USE command assigns vDosPlus drive letters to Windows drives,
rem folders, or network shares. The command syntax is:
rem USE <vDosPlus drive letter:> <Windows drive:/folder/network share>\
rem Examples: USE C: D:\dosprog\, USE F: \\server\share\dosprog\.
rem If you assigned another drive letter with USE, you could select it now:
rem F:
rem vDosPlus C: is by default assigned to the vDosPlus working directory in
rem Windows. But you can let vDosPlus use the same Windows drive letters in
rem vDosPlus automatically by setting the USEDRVS option in the config file.

rem vDosPlus provides support to Windows-style long file names (LFN),
rem in addition to traditional DOS 8.3 short file names (SFN).
rem Type HELP for help, or EXIT to close the vDosPlus window.
rem You may start Doszip Commander by typing DZ from the command line.

C:\>ver
vDosPlus 2017.08.01 (build 2018.01.09), 4DOS 8.00, reported DOS version: 7.10
C:\>



P.S. nasm fails too.

This may the conflict between vDosPlus and cwsdpmi then - have you tried with a different DPMI server? HX DOS is a very good one that I personally use to run fasmd.

Yes, maybe there's a conflict. I've no idea how DOS works, in detail. Thanks for the link to HX DOS. DOS is interesting and amazing. It looks like I'll be using DOSBox. fasm/fasmd works fine there. This is a vDosPlus problem.

It's also very easy to setup a bootable USB with FreeDOS, assuming you still have an old-style BIOS (or at least UEFI with CSM, which won't exist in 2020!). See RUFUS. Thus, if you want the true DOS experience, you need to native boot! Wink
