it pretty old software designed for dos 16 bit, but you are using win 7 64 bit,,
win 7 64 has no support for 16 bit applications ,, you have to go for win 7 32 bit it may work..

No dude, he's trying to run it inside DOSBox. Major difference there.

@philbest, to my knowledge DOSBox is mainly intended for gaming. Do you get any specific error messages?

i get it.... but it seems dosbox it an emulator to run 16 bit programs 32 bit windows,
in windows 7 64 bit emulates 32 bit application to run in 64 bit..
so
parodox 4.5(16 bit) get emulated for 32 bit with dosbox
windows 7 64 emulates 32 bit programs to work on 64 bit os..

its like double emulation, it doesn't make much sense

better try it with windows 7 32 bit or in XPmode or use virtual Pc ,vmware

The kind of emulation thing he's trying to do is EXACTLY what DOSBox is designed to to. It runs in a host system like Windows 7 and provides a 16-bit environment for programs that need it.

I run DosBox with very old DOS games like Duke3D, Countdown, Gabriel Knight 1. etc. They run just fine for me under Windows 7 64-bit and I didn't have to do anything special. Of course, Duke3D and GK1 I purchased through Good 'Ol Games and they give you an install program that sets it all up for you, but still, 16-bit apps CAN run via DosBox in Windows 7 64-bit.

I'm not familiar with the trying to run Paradox in DosBox though.
