    I'm learning electricity at and am still a beginner.

    The lessons make many references to using the program Spice 2G6, which they say needs to be run through Dos.

    I know there are many more current versions of Spice, but as I would like to follow the lessons as closely as possible (at least in the beggining) I would like to be able to run Spice 2G6.

    My problem is that I have windows XP, and am not very affluent in Dos.

    Is there anyone who could explain to me how I would get this running on my machine?

    I have moved this post to its own thread in the General Electronic Chat to increase its exposure.

    The problem is that XP don´t have any dos. You can try to use start->run cmd (enter) and then go to the directory you need (use cd "dir you want to go to" and cd.. (to go one level up))

    If the program does´t run, you can try to get an old boot-disk with dos and boot from floppy drive. But if you have NTFS file system you won´t be able to get to your disk.
