    Anyone mind checking if DOSBox works on their installation of Windows 10 TP?

    On my computer DOSBox 0.74 manages to load the console and then just crash, resulting in me needing to force close the program.

    If anyone has managed to get DOSBox to work on the Technical Preview, could you please share how you managed to do so.

    Thanks!

    Interesting. I have a feeling the reason it is crashing on my system is due to the AMD graphics driver that was pushed through Windows Update a week ago.

    This is what happens on my machine:

    I've tried re-installing a few times as well. I guess, I may have to wait and see if AMD or Microsoft pushes a newer GPU driver update.

    I installed Dosbox 0.74 on the first build of Windows 10, and had no problems running Lords of the Realm. I unfortunately have not played it since upgrading to build 9926 though. Truthfully I haven't fired up build 9926 as much because I don't like the "new" start menu as much as previous builds.
