CDBG and DBG are DOS based application designed to run in a variety of OS configurations. We've successfully used DBG in
- Bare DOS configurations
- DOS with EMM386/HIMEM
- Windows 9x DOS box
- Windows NT
Why doesn't DBG use a fancy Windows interface with dialog boxes and pop-up menus? DBG needs to be able to run in a simple environment to help debug hardware. The Windows family of operating systems may make the debug environment too fragile to use. Speed is also a concern. We've used DBG on PCs where the Pentium is running at about 2% of its normal speed - you just don't want to wait for Windows to boot when the computer is this slow.
