PC Computer - x86 Emulators

<< Go to Windows systems list

Name Description
Aeon Aeon is an application that allows you to run old 16-bit DOS applications in modern versions of Windows. It emulates much of the hardware of a PC with a 386 processor, including a VGA card, SoundBlaster card, General MIDI music device, and keyboard/mouse input. It also provides an implementation of most of the commonly-used DOS functions, mouse driver, and an expanded memory manager.

Bochs Bochs is a PC emulator written by Kevin Lawton. It is capable of emulating enough of the components of a modern PC to run Windows 95 and Linux, as well as a few other PC operating systems. Bochs runs on Windows (95, 98, and NT), various flavors of UNIX, and BeOS.
DodGE This is an emulator to emulate old DOS games, like Elite. It is currently not being worked on,
but it supports several types of games, including CGA modes 4-6, text modes 0-3, full x86 (real-mode)
emulation, Full keyboard availability, runs DOS EXE,COM, and BAT programs, will run bootable
floppy images, some DOS emulation, speed throttling, PC speaker -&gt; MIDI sound support, and the
PC timer chip.
DosBox DOSBox is a cross-platform emulator of a PC with DOS. It can run games written for DOS out of the local file system. The emulator is still under heavy development and it runs about 60% of the games it was designed for.
Fake86 Fake86 is an 8086 PC emulator written in C. It is written from scratch, including the CPU core and has been under development since October 2010. It was originally written in FreeBASIC, however I have since re-written it in C for greater speed and portability.

PCE/libmpc PCE is an IBM PC 5150 emulator. It emulates most of the hardware of an IBM PC 5150. The emulation is complete enough to boot DOS and run most DOS applications.

PCE was written in ANSI-C and is licensed under the GNU General Public License, Version 2.
QTemu QtEmu is an application that uses Qemu and KVM to run virtual machines. It is written in Qt4, and integrates well into the KDE desktop (though there is also a Linux version). It is meant to be a replacement for software such as VMware.

It has the ability to run any operating system on your computer without the need for rebooting or even disturbing the operating system you already have installed. This allows you to easily test a new operating system or try a Live CD on your system without any danger to your computer.
Script PC Emulates 8/16/32-bit architecture of home computers. You could use this to run old PC programs.
