Where to buy MS-DOS 6.22 License sticker / Do We still need one for commercial use

    Question

  • We are using MS-DOS 6.22,

    Where we can buy licence sticker?

    The place that was supplying it, just sent us a notice for End Of Life of the sticker.

    Since this is not supported product and no licence stickers are available,

    Do we still need to buy and display the sticker.

    Thanks you!

  • A. You have placed your question into wrong category. You are dealing with DOS while landing into Vista migration.

    B. I am afraid that except very special cases you will not be able to get this license legaly.

  • DOS 6.22 was only available via the Microsoft Embedded channel and it most certainly requires a license and a COA sticker.  You are correct in that it went EOL on 12/31/15 and is no longer available. In fact you are prohibited from shipping any new systems with DOS 6.22 on them because the Embedded agreement that you would have signed in order to buy the product does not allow you to ship a new device with the product after the EOL date.  There is no replacement.  Your best option is to move to something like FreeDOS.
