Download dosbox-staging 0.75.0 (zip)
If Windows 8.x or Windows 10 prevents you from running dosbox-staging via Microsoft Defender SmartScreen, see the section below.
Development snapshot builds
You can always see what's cooking on the master branch :)
These builds might be slow or unstable as they are designed with developers and testers in mind: download instructions for snapshot builds.
§ Older builds

§ Microsoft Defender SmartScreen
SmartScreen will allow you to run application, after you click on "More info":
Right-click on "dosbox.exe" file distributed in the zip file, select "Properties", and then "Unblock".
Starting in Windows 8, Microsoft's SmartScreen pop-up encumbers the execution of newly-developed applications. To prevent this, developers are expected to pay Microsoft's EV certification vendors a yearly fee and put the software on Windows Store1.
As dosbox-staging is a volunteer effort, we are not in a position to make such payments. We therefore ask users to manually unblock dosbox-staging and be patient while Microsoft's "Application Reputation" scheme eventually whitelists dosbox-staging (see: , and the last paragraph in ).
Building from source
Of course you can always build dosbox-staging straight from the source. Send us patches if you improve something! :)
