auto start windows 3.1 game


Recommended Posts


I have launchbox launching a windows 3.1 dosbox. My question is, how do i get it to launch a game automatically rather than booting in to Windows, then having to find in file explorer and launching the exe?

I have found many comments around using a custom dosbox config file and under the autoexec section putting something like 

mount c "H:\Emulation\LaunchBox\Games\MS-DOS\Windows 3.1\"
c:\windows\win WINEXIT.EXE C:\Games\SpellJu\BST\BST.EXE

But the above doesn't work...

Can someone please help?

Happy to be told to go read a full tutorial, but which one, it would need to run me through it step by step unfortunately?

If I remember correctly, there's a startup folder in the start menu in old windows versions. You could add a shortcut there, and it would show up in the msconfig startup section. I'm not sure how to auto start it from a command line, though.
