Hello,
we have, in our company, this problem:
we use a Citrix Server based on W2003 OS. There are many clients who
connect and launch old DOS 16bit applications.
Now, we have tested that this applications, with windows 2003 OS and
its new NTVDM.EXE, only runs correctly with full screen mode(!).
But when a client connects to the Citrix server, no one window can be
expanded in full screen mode!! So, the result is that a DOS
application freezes! Please don’t suggest me to convert the old
applications... I can’t!

Thanks in advance for the answers &
Best regards.

You cannot really run a DOS session in full screen, but there is a
way around this. You can simulate a full screen DOS session by
installing a special font.

Another thing to be aware of is that many 16-bit & DOS Apps dominate the CPU while they poll for keyboard strokes. There are some freeware & 3rd party applications that can control this activity so a few (or one) users don't saturate the CPUs.

3rd Party Add-ons (like WMSoftware Relevos, Appsense Performance Manager, TAME DOS, TMULimit, TSCale...)

Free Downloads (like threadmaster)
