I was playing around with a FreeDOS VM, and downloaded Terminate 5.00 to use >on it.
When I try to run INSTALL.EXE, I get the classic Error 200 from Pascal.
Tried to use the TPPatch.exe and nothing... Should I decompress the .EXE fil
patch it and compress it again?
Uncompress, get and use PATCHCRT and leave it as it is. No need to

if the binary is compressed, of course you have to uncompress it first ;)
recompressing it is up to you for the most part... just be aware that some software has built-in tamper-detection code so no matter what you do, you may be screwed... only solution in many of those cases is to run a TSR like
moslow or similar which makes the CPU slower in that instance so the timing calibration won't all take place within the same second leading to x-x=0 where 0 is used for the divide operation...
