      WP8 is a Windows program, not DOS, so it won't run under DOSBox.

It prints to the default OS X printer, creates PDF files, transfers data via the clipboard, and lets you double-click on a document to open it in WPDOS. Details here:

(Also, with this system, it's easy to create an Automator service that adds "Open in WPDOSBox" to the contextual menu of files, so that I can open any WP file with WPDOS, no matter what the file's extension might be.)
