    Hi people I know this is a strange request but i have a client needs to recover and old dos database but his MS DOS 6.22 installation disks are screwed.

    Anyone know where i can buy MS DOS 6.22 installation disks.

    Tryed the recovery on the free DrDOS and FreeDOS but it fails but the database was running on MS DOS 6.22 so its my last chance. Perplexed

    Thanks

    Look at eBay or find an old computer store in your area and see if you can get a copy

    You download this for free from Microsoft's site.

    EDIT:  I know I've seen it there before I just can't find it - not even using google.

    I know what you're talking about, but those 3 files are just DOS6->DOS6.22 upgrade files and cannot be used to create boot disk.

    If you have access to a MSDOS 6.22 PC, you should be able to mak the requisite boot floppy with something like

    format a: /s

    if memory serves

    www.ultimatebootcd.com may also be of some use

    MSDN has MSDOS6.22 and previous versions.

    Has Microsoft officially released MS-DOS free to the public?

    Or is it still considered pirating if you downloaded it off the internet?

    It's not been released for free to my knowledge.

    Technically it's even still sold (as part of an MSDN subscription).
