Installing Accpac Plus Dos Version

By mars1946 ·
Which is the best Server base to use to install Accpac Plus on? It is presently loaded on Novell 3.12 HP Proliant Servers. We are going to have to upgrade the servers to either HP or Dell Blade units so will have to change the Server System to gain redundancy and fault tolerance. What would be the best system to run the old Accpac on a Windows Server Program or a Linux Program ie Redhat etc?

Well, running it in DOS would be second-best

to getting a newer version of Accpac.

You won't get it to run on a Unix at all unless it is though a reliable DOS emulator or DOS VM. Running it on newer versions of Windows (if you consider 2000 or XP to be newer) sounds like a coin toss. May be best in a DOS VM under Windows as well.

You are probably in for a lot of testing to keep a DOS app running under either Windows or Unix/Linux/BSD.

Getting it to install at all may be a feat in itself.
