As far as we know, Microsoft Windows no longer supports 16-bit MS-DOS application and they removed NTVDM, since virtual 8086 mode is not available under amd64 extended mode. This project aimed at building a virtual dos machine for 64-bit Windows.
The idea of this project is to emulate a 16-bit CPU and provide BIOS/DOS interrupt services to MS-DOS applications. In NTVDM64, 16-bit applications runs as before in 32-bit Windows. We want to create a compatible environment for 16-bit applications, for example, applications can access disk files on host machine using legacy DOS interrupts instead of using network sharing.
Now we already have a PC emulator which could run in Win32 console and it supports all 8086 instructions - MS-DOS 6.22 runs well inside this PC emulator. The only work left for this project is to combine the emulator with Windows Shell.

Pretty useful project! I can't believe someone still shows support for old software! Thank you!
