Thank you Ralf !
Based on what yoy say, I'm afraid I' have no chance !
Let me clarify the scenario.
I've got two Lenovo 15" Notebooks (Thinkpad).
The former is running Windows XP SP3 32 bit,
the other is Running Widows 7 Pro 64 bit.
On the former no problem to run my DOS application 
Without any "DOS utility". Also the "glorious"
Lotus 123 for Windows runs perfectly. All data are 
perfectly tranferred/shared among all applications.
On the other PC none of the above are running natively.
If I  activate the XP Mode, the situation is as follows:
1) The DOS Application is running, but only in an
unsizeale small window, totally useless due to the too
small characters.
2) Data can not be stored/printed on any device "shared"
by the DOS task and the other Windows 7 tasks.

If I do not find any "workable" walkaround solution to 
work all the stuff on a unique PC I'll be forced to
keep the XP PC at least for the DOS application and
use the W7 PC for all the other applications. In that
case the "file transfer" will not be a problem, but 
this is a very poor comfort !
Best regards       Giorgio
