I used to think people running XP were stuck on ancient software. You, my friend, have broken the record when it comes being ancient! Many on this forum were not even born when Dos was king. Of those that were alive at the time, do you still even remember how to use it?

Have you tried running these ancient dos programs under a Windows 10 command prompt? I believe it might even be possible to make that command prompt backward compatible.

I simply recommend using Dosbox for running DOS based apps & games.

Does Dosbox even work with Windows 10?

I think Fuj's pinball uses Dosbox. And it works on windows 10. So Dosbox can run on windows 10.

I'm positive Dosbox works on windows 10, as GOG uses this as a standard program for old games.
I'm 80~% positive I've used it myself to emulate/wrap some programs, although without much luck as the games ran poorly.
