    Do you have a real machine running DOS (which machine, which DOS?), or just an emulator (which emulator)? – Bruce Abbott Jan 8 '18 at 8:53

    Your question is unclear. Do you mean MS-DOS or another DOS? We need more information to be able to help you. – Chenmunka Jan 8 '18 at 9:27

    Your question is very unclear - Are you asking how to get a program from anywhere onto a DOS machine? – tofro Jan 8 '18 at 10:04
  • What is considered 'special software' in your question? – Raffzahn Jan 8 '18 at 14:01

    One possible interpretation of your question would be how to build and execute a program written in assembly language using only MS-DOS and tools included with it (which is achievable using the DEBUG program that is supplied with MS-DOS) – Jules Jan 8 '18 at 20:09

Assuming your question is about working with 8086 assembly language programs, without using third party software.

Look at the DEBUG.EXE program that is part of all practical MS-DOS distributions -it does contain a simple assembler and the needed auxiliary tools.
