    and this came up:

    Protected mode drive is not responding to the EMS function calls.
    Make sure your EMS driver is not configured with the NOEMS option.
    If it is replace the NOEMS with RAM

    what do i do and is it safe to do it :hs: ??

    old dos games might use EMS (extended memory) or XMS (expanded memory) that was configured in the config.sys on startup. you can probably still set the necessary parameters in a virtual dos machine, but what operating system are you using?

    yes, it is safe
