Applications running on FreeDOS 1.2

FreeDOS 1.2 installs a standard version of FreeDOS. If you don't see the program you want, run the FDIMPLES program to install the program or program group that you want. Here's an example:

Starting the FreeDOS Installer—My Package List Editor Software (“FDIMPLES”) shows you what programs (“packages”) you have installed. On the left, you see the package groups. On the right, you see the packages. The bottom pane shows a description of the package.
FDIMPLES
Here, I've selected the Games package group by pressing the space bar. This automatically selects everything under Games.

To apply your changes, hit Tab until you highlight OK then press Enter.

FDIMPLES then applies the changes you want, adding any packages you asked to install, and removing anything you un-selected.
