I tried to maximise the window by pressing simultaneously Alt + Enter, but it causes a very slow game and I can ensure you that my problem is not the hardware...
Bye, thank you all for the very useful guide!

This guide might help with Dosbox performance.

Even with fast hardware some games have emulator issues in certain circumstances so it's worth a shot.

I just retested the guide on Windows 7 64-bit and it works. Double check and make sure the game is downloaded from Abandonia and the dosbox commands are entered correctly and every was step followed correctly as well.

I can't type anything into the command prompt. Two windows pop up - one that is just blank and the other is a DOS window, I try to type there but nothing happens ?
