Edit: You should understand that DOS 6.22 supports FAT 16 only while DOS 7.1 supports FAT 16 and FAT 32. No version of DOS has ever supported NTFS. Your virtual machine will have no access to the host hard drive unless you set up the OS for network access and doing that in DOS is not simple.
Thanks for the information. That's probably the reason I can load the integration features. I didn't know if it was a user issue or a system issue. Now I think it's a system issue and I won't spend a lot of time trying to figure it out.

Thanks

Like I said earlier, other virtual environments such as VirtualBox and VMWare Player (both free) offer much better support for other OSes such as DOS, early versions of Windows, Linux, OS/2, etc...

If you really want to play with a bunch of VMs either of those will work better than MS VPC. Their websites/documentation even have guides regarding setting up VMs with many different OSes. I'd recommend that you give one of them a try.

I checked out the VMware site. I didn't realize the free VMware player would work. I thought you had to buy one of their applications to do it. I'll give it a try.

I also want to see what the Win 7 system is capable of doing without additional programs just for general purposes.

Thanks for the information.
