I've created a shortcut on my desktop using the following target:"C:\Program Files\DOSBox-0.74\DOSBox.exe" -userconf "C:\NBA96\NBA96.exe"
For Windows 7, you'll probably need to use:"C:\Program Files (x86)\DOSBox-0.74\DOSBox.exe" -userconf "C:\NBA96\NBA96.exe"
Also make sure that you add MOUNT D D:\ -t cdrom
to the DOSBox configuration file (accessible through All Programs -> DOSBox-0.74 -> Options -> DOSBox 0.74 Options). Just copy and paste it at the bottom of the file, which should open in Notepad, then save. This will save you the trouble of mounting the optical drive each time and allow the shortcut to work. If your optical drive is assigned a letter other than D, make sure you substitute accordingly (eg MOUNT E E:\ -t cdrom
, MOUNT I I:\ -t cdrom
