@jaclaz I'm sorry, I meant the actual files offered up for download, as many of the original links are broken. I have the site itself, thanks to you :)

No prob :), but if you list (possibly starting a new thread) the list of the not-working/not-found/not-retrieveable files maybe they can be recovered (from other sources).

Some may have been downloaded/archived by some members, some may have been only "mirrors" (and the file is still retrievable from somewhere else), etc.

Here's a temporary mirror of Dosghost and DOS Solutions:

http://209.65.191.189/

Don't hammer it too hard, as it's hosted by a VM running MS-DOS! Plus, I don't have much bandwidth, so it won't be the fastest.

I can't keep it up 24/7, but if it's offline, PM me and I'll fix it.

I have a usb gamepad it has the old nintendo design

is it possible to have those configured in  dos?

i haven't seen a gameport joystick on sale for many years.

Found a Adapter Cable USB Type A male to DA15 / DB15 female Joystick / Gamepad / MIDI

but not a Type A female to DA15 / DB15 male Joystick / Gamepad / MIDI I guess that would need conversion logic

Does anyone know if this site is still online in any form? On a different host, perhaps?

The only place I can access it is the Wayback Machine, but it is imperfect, and some things are missing/broken.

Following your url with the waybackmachine I came across this site https://code.google.com/archive/p/nanox-microwindows-nxlib-fltk-for-dos/downloads

I tried to find a current virus scanner for DOS other than clamAV. I found that there are was a free bitdefender MSDOS edition until 2004. But it's impossible for me to find that distribution, which was at last freeware. I didn't managed to get bdcdos.zip, bd.rar or kit_msdosedition.zip from any site on the web.

I managed to find out, that bddosc.exe was part of eg. bitdefender Professional 7.2-11 (bitdefender_prof_v72-11.exe). But it crashes when using it under DOSbox or vDOSplusED in certain cases.

Also I'm not sure, if it really uses the updates downloaded from that version installed in Windows 98 virtualbox (6.1). The update process updates, but closes with an error message, but in the plugins folder it downloaded a bunch of new files from the current bitdefender upgrade server.

Though I didn't tried yet to run it in a FreeDOS virtualbox VM.

Here some output of the program

The GPF seems to be related to djgpp https://groups.google.com/g/microsoft.public.win3x_wfw_dos/c/MnFN9_c3Hw0
http://www.delorie.com/djgpp/v2faq/faq18_6.html

Maybe it's more reliable in protected Mode real DOS, than in a MS-DOS Prompt in Windows 98.

EDIT: I got the same error when rebooting into MSDOS (windows 98) and cwsdpmi.exe (v7) in the same directory. Maybe I need to install himem.sys or the like.

Hi Jarsin.

ROSE SWE's heuristic based virus scanner (rhbvs_v5-20.zip, ~4MB) works in DOS and was last updated in 2021. You may want to give that a go, from DOS of course. It can also be run from a DOS prompt (COMMAND.COM window) during a Windows 98 graphic session. Not sure about FreeDOS compatability.
http://rose-swe.bplaced.net/dl/

The program provides English output although most documentation is German. Running 'rHBVS.EXE' provides English usage information. Example output below.
