Another request for long file name support....
It would be great to execute win supported file names, in DosBox.
I have already added long file name (LFN) support to DOSBox recently. It applies to both shell commands (e.g. DIR, CD, COPY) and Int21/AX=71xx functions for native LFN-aware DOS applications.

Latest Windows binary + required DLLs, zipped:
has your improved code been added to trunk?
Many thanks for these features,
Pablo: I don't think so, although I hope this happens too. As a side note, even the LPT printer support hasn't been added to trunk yet.
Wengier, many thanks for your fast reply. BTW, has your version linked above LPT printer support?
Pablo: My enhanced version of DOSBox currently only includes patches made by myself, including long file name (LFN) and mouse copy/paste support. It is not a real "mega pack", so it does not really contain patches made by other users, unlike for example the DOSBox SVN Daum build (which is a collection of patches made by different users). Hope this will answer your question.
I just checked the latest DOSBox SVN Daum build, which had not included the LFN feature yet. You may contact its maintainer if you want this feature in addition to patches made by other users in a single edition.
Wengier, many thanks for your help.
I will contact him. LFN is not a priority for me. I need to be able to print.
My program warns that the printer is shut down or unplugged, when I send a print request.
