Booting Embedded DSL on Windows

Is this possible? I downloaded the file, unzipped it to folder DSL on the Desktop. Opened up the DSL folder and doubleclicked on the dsl-windows.bat file. It opens up two terminals, DSL starts to boot up, but stops with a message:

Uncompressing linux ...

It just halts there, no hard drive activity or CPU activity. Only the mouse cursor shows an hour glass.

Then I get an error message box that says:

The instruction at "0x00471e2d" referenced memory at "0x00000010". The memory could not be "read".

Should this be working?

Should not open two terminals, try running it from the Run menu, browse to the .bat file select it & run

Well, it works fine on my home machine, must be something with that machine at work. Can IT do something that would prevent me from botting up DSL in a terminal?

I had the same problem. Right clicking on the dsl-embedded.bat icon from Windows Explorer and setting compatibility to 'Windows 95' fixed it.
