Use the SETVER command if a program looks for specific DOS version
e.g.
SETVER PROGRAM.EXE 7.00

XP does not ship with any version DOS. It ships with a DOS command line emulator that is mostly compatible with DOS 6.22.

Setver will tell trick dos based programs into thinking you have a different version of DOS. Not sure if it works on XP. What are you trying to do? You can rt. click on programs and properties and change your programs compatability.
