Well as far as i know, XP has left DOS inthe past,. Yes it does have command prompt, but no DOS.
But if it is a DOS application, go to the files properties, and click onthe compatability option, and select what OS you want XP to make the program work in.
It will run the program as if it was in dos,but it is not realy.
hope it helps
