Is it possible to run an old DOS appl. on PPC2003? It is a program which is
1,5MB and the data file is 10 MB.

Is this possible?

Thanx,
Michael

It should be noted though some DOS programs will run but some won't.

A categorical no. Although "Windows Mobile" contains windows in the
title this is as far as the resemblance goes to Windows 95/98 or Windows
2000/XP or any other desktop windows operating system that Microsoft
produce that runs DOS backwards compatibility.

Q: What is PocketDOS?
A: PocketDOS is an MS-DOS 6.22 compatible DOS for your Microsoft
Windows CE, Pocket PC, Windows Mobile based Pocket Computer. In
addition to a full DOS, PocketDOS lets you install and run many DOS
programs* on your Pocket Computer. PocketDOS also lets you access
devices such as touchscreens, built-in and external modems, IR ports,
flash disks, network drives, printers and more from within DOS and DOS
programs.
(* Intel 8086/80186 compatible using CGA,EGA,VGA, HP-LX or text
display modes. Intel 80386/80486 compatibility can be added by
installing a 3rd party CPU plug-in)

In other words, there is no native support for "Microsoft Windows CE,
Pocket PC, Windows Mobile based Pocket Computer". The only option is to
purchase a DOS "emulator" which is not always guaranteed to run all your
old software.
