I stumbled on this last night. And yes, it's good ole dosbox, but this guy made an installer and you can "right click to it".

This video demonstrates the installer, actual usage and the uninstall functionality. The entire setup only requires 33MB of disk space.

I think that's pretty obvious if you watch the video or read the description of the video. Are you implying some sort of deception here?

yes, a subsystem is built into windows, and does not require the installation of both an emulator, and an os within an emulator.

Sounds like semantics, but the fact the he used "subsystem" as the name is inconsequential to the fact that it works for it's intended purpose.

I agree with Squall on this, pointless mis-leading thread title, which turns out to be nothing more than Dosbox.
It's cool, none the less, but the guy posting the video didn't even post a link to try it out, so the video is even more pointless than this mis-leading thread.

I mean, I could post a thread titled "8-bit subsystem for Win7 x64", just because I can right-click on a NES rom and get it to automagically run Nestopia.

If you didn't point out the fact that it was nestopia then yeah that would be deceptive. The point was thats what the guy called it, so thats what I called it.

And it's never pointless to spread new ideas.

Its not really a new idea. Its no different to installing windows 3.1 in VirtualBox.

No that part isn't new by far. Although I'm not sure if VB will let you play as many games in win 3.1 as dosbox will or not. But simply being able to right click an exe and having it run right away in either dos or win 3.1 mode...

Don't tell me you can't see how that is a new idea in relation to this.

Dosbox has less hardware support than VirtualBox

The majority of the 16bit issues are installers themselves, rather then the Application.

Despite the inaccurate name, I think streamlining the emulator's functionality into the shell menu is a creative idea as well.

Read the comments on the video.
