(one of those rare "good news" postings in this forum)

A diehard ACCPAC Plus client of mine (the only kind) reports that he has succeeded in getting ACCPAC Plus running smoothly with a 64-bit machine, include using Remote Desktop, with full-screen viewing, using a product called ExDOS ( He searched high and low for months before finding this solution and is very happy with it.

The product is not free, so please don't consider this an endorsement, rather a suggestion. There is a downloadable trial version.

Does anyone have any experience of their own with this or another similar product?

On a Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit machine (Pentium i5), I have installed Windows XP Pro on a virtual machine with Oracle VirtualBox (free at and ACCPAC Plus is running great under that. You can see if your processor supports virtualization at

VirtualBox should be able to run FreeDOS or DOSBox as well ( but I think these don't support share.exe which Plus needs to run in a DOS environment.

Probably the good news would be if they moved into the 21st century and upgraded to a Windows accounting system.
