No, in his previous post(s) he stated that when he types "dir fractint" it shows the contents of the folder, that means he is executing that commend from a level above. And just typing "fractint[.exe]" does not find it, which clearly indicates that that "fractint" folder is not in his path. So the presence of a license file (or the lack thereof) doesn't have any bearing on what he is trying to do until he properly tells (Free)DOS what exactly he's trying to execute. So as I already told him, he needs to add the full path to that .exe file to the PATH variable or simpler, to get him going, _*c*__h_ange into the fractint **_*d*__ir_ectory (hence my hint to the _*C*H*D*IR_ command, "folder" is properly called a "directory" in DOS) and then try to type and execute fractint.exe. And if that program then is actually doing what he expects (in a VM) is a complete different story...
