Hi Mike! Welcome!

That's exactly what I thought before I discovered this site and Ztree!

Depends on what DOS you're talking about. If you mean DOS 6.x with Windows 3.x, you're right - it won't work. I don't know if Kim plans on making this work. I doubt it - the Win 3.x world is dwindling, and XtreeGold works fine for that world still (except for the frustrating memory limitations).

But if you're using Windows 95/98/NT you'll be pleased to know that it IS a dos-mode application! I was so excited to see this because all the Windows-interface attempts to emulate the DOS Xtree were/are miserable failures IMHO. Nothing compares to the look and feel of XtreeGold for DOS and fotunately, Ztree hits that mark perfectly!

Hmmm... I'm not sure what you mean here. Can you explain further? You *can* see long filenames in Win95/98/NT at the "dos prompt" on the right side. I do know that Ztree's Batch commands can use both long and short filenames, which is very helpful.

I hope you try Ztree and report back here what you think.
