If you were using Windows or Macintosh computers in the 1980s and 1990s, then you probably remember their classic 8086 microprocessors. Well now, you can run some of the older software that was compatible with these processors. All you need is the EMU8086 - MICROPROCESSOR EMULATOR.

EMU8086 is a free 8086 microprocessor emulator that is compatible with modern computer platforms. It allows you to emulate classic software titles from the 1980s and 1990s and the ability to run your own assembly code. However, the EMU8086 cannot emulate the functions of a microcomputer that used the 8086 processor. It can only emulate the processor itself.

Suppose you wanted to write and program assembly software that would have been compatible with early IBM computers or the NEC-P9801. You cannot access the advanced functions of the hardware components and monitors associated with those computers. You can only write software for a computer that used the 8086 processor.

You might wonder why anyone would want to use this emulator today. Well, believe it or not, the 8086 processor is still used with modern industrial and business applications. If you work in an industry involved with the 8086 processor, you might have a reason to conduct software experiments using the EMU8086.

Note: Limited hardware emulation and setup required.
