    Does exactly what it's described to do: Making older programs and games work in windowed mode and sometimes even enables them to work at all on modern machines! gho is also really active in the forums.

    DxWnd is amazing, without it I wouldn't even bother going back to revisit older games. It's a little daunting at first to setup because of the vast amount of options, but gho (the developer) is super helpful, just make a post about your game and he'll help you set the thing up, or he'll just fix DxWnd to work with your game. 6/5 Stars.

    Super helpful developer, super useful program. It's the ONLY way to fix certain games like Hoyle Casino Empire in w8.

    A really great piece of software, driven by a developer who's both active and supportive.
