Chapter 26. Installing, Running, and Uni... > Configuring Your MS-DOS Application

Configuring Your MS-DOS Application

Before you explore the myriad options for customizing the MS-DOS environment for your application, there's one point that needs to be stressed: The odds are very good that your program will run perfectly without any reconfiguration at all. Microsoft has done a truly admirable job in observing the reality of how people use MS-DOS applications under Windows, and it is reflected in the design of Windows 95 MS-DOS defaults. Preset configurations for the most popular MS-DOS applications are stored in Windows, awaiting your installation of the program. So before you begin messing around with all the options, be smart and run the program a few times. The old adage truly applies: If it ain't broke, don't fix it. See "Graphic-Intensive Applications," in this chapter about the APPS.INF file.
