    What OS are you trying to install it on? What are your system specs?

    I need to install 6.1 as well, on win2003 SBS if possible.

    I'm trying to help a firm upgrade, but they want to update their hardware and OS first, then will update AccPac when they are prepared for the next step.

    So can I get 6.1 AccPac for DOS on Win2K3 and where can I find resources on how?

    It is a nice read and seems to have the attention of a person that works with them and a phone number of the company there.

    Investigate creating a virtual DOS or Win 3.11 PC in Windows 7/8. VMWare and MS should both have fixes for you. Use latest hadware/OS, retain legacy application.
