(Guess why?)

I used IDA Free 4.3 to make this disassembly.
I think 5.0 still supports DOS executables.

BTW, you should open the *.idb file instead of PRINCE.EXE, though that might display the same error message.
Yeah, you're right, it looks like newer versions of IDA Free v7.0 don't support DOS executables any more. That's rather silly, especially since a commercial copy of IDA is crazy expensive.

Luckily, ScummVM's website got permission to host v5.0 of IDA Free. That's downloadable from here: https://www.scummvm.org/news/20180331/

Ah, you found a copy.

Meanwhile I found some archives of old IDA versions as well:

Maybe this is a warning that in the long term I should switch to a different disassembler...
