    Hi Retropie forum.
    I’m having some trouble with the DOSBox emulator…
    Suddenly it just wouldn’t lauch. When I try to lauch a game the screen goes black, and shortly after returns back to Emulationstation.

    I looked at the runcommand.log file which said /opt/retropie/supplementary/runcommand/runcommand.sh: line 684: /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/pc/+Start DOSBox.sh: Permission denied

    What is wrong, and how can I fix it?
    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    This happened to me recently. I went into the retropie options menu and reinstalled dosbox from binary and it fixed the issue.
