    There usually is a problem with imaging MS-DOS 6.22 [last version] and Windows 3.11/Windows for Workgroups 3.11 [last versions] in that they came on floppies and the disk programming calls for inserting the next disk, makes it difficult to put all the files in one image file. I have them imaged using WinImage so I can create new ones when needed but don't think I'll need to go that route again, have only one machine with Win3.1 and it's a laptop 386SX-16MHz.

    I run Windows 3.1 in DOSBox, so that I can run Jezzball in an x64 environment. It has Calmira as the shell (which gives it a Win95 like setup)

    Hi there

    Wonder if anybody noticed that there was NO MENU on Windows 3.11 -- so maybe Windows WILL be going back to its roots. !!! Nobody complained back then about any Start Menu (Lack of).

    Because back then, no one knew what a computer was LOL .........

Hi, This is unrelated to Win 10 so thought this area might be best I put the VMWare Player on my PC to use Win 10 and would also like to now try putting XP on it for a bit of nostalgia, no networking with host but would like internet on it ...
Hi there W10 still seems to have some type of networking problem - OUTGOING is OK -- W10 CAN see W7 HDD's and access them. W7 CAN see W10 computer but cannot access any HDD's. W7 CAN access W10 if you specify the actual IP address for example...
