We do. It's called Windows NT.

An interesting little feature in the Windows 3.1 (Gateway 2000 OEM - Nomad 486) version of Windows 3.1, is the "Shutdown" application, which doesn't seem to appear in any other versions of 3.1.
A similar feature was integrated into Windows 95 and beyond.

Hello. How do I fix run-time error R6003 integer divide by 0 when attempting to install Windows 3.1 build 3.10.026? I'm using PCem with a 30Mb VHD, single 1.44Mb 3.5 Inch VFD, i386DX/33, VGA, 16Mb ram, and MS-DOS 6.22. Please help.
I've not tried 3.10.026 in PCem, but I have it running well in 86Box, this is my config.
Machine: [486 ISA] Award 486 clone
CPU: Intel i486SX/16
Display: [ISA] Tseng ET4000AX
HD:: IDE 30 Mb.
Ok. I'll try that. By the way, once you get the chance, can you test it in PCem? If you can figure out a PCem config for it that would be great! I'm doing a little project for myself.
Just tried it in PCem 14 with this config:
Machine:  AMI WinBIOS 486
CPU: AMD Am486DX2/80
Graphics: Tseng ET4000AX
Thanks! By the way, If you wanted to know what my project is, I'm trying out all windows builds on here. It's a silly little project. I wouldn't recommend it if you don't have the disk space and/or the time for it, but if you wanted to, I'll (try to) provide a list of my configs.
If You want an CD-ROM Of Windows 3.1 Build 26 For Some Reason Here you go:
I used UltraISO to make an image in VMware12. Pro MS-dos7.10 is installed in the VIRTUAL machine. When I try to boot, VMware reports an error and prompts me that the CPU has entered the shutdown state. How can I solve this problem? (Intel CORE 2Duo U9600 CPU,@ 1.6ghz)
install it in PCem or 86box, don't use VMware or VirtualBox
Whenever I attempt to install Windows 3.11 OEM Workgroups for Windows on top of MS-DOS 6.2, I get an error shutting down the installation while running Disk #2 of the Windows for Workgroups. The error tells me I must click F3 and exit the installation because a WinHelp file is either corrupt or needs to be created. Any suggestions?

Use PCem Or 86box, Use virtualbox/VMware if it's for Youtube
If it's too hard to Use PCem Or 86box, Use QEMU Or DOSbox

I think there's a mislabel, i'm not sure because i haven't installed it yet but Windows 3.1 [Simplified chinese] in archive type, is supposed to be 3.2... 3.1 never released in china.
Windows 3.10.034e is a mislabel. its 34f. Sources:
Windows 3.1 (Dell OEM) (3.5-1.44mb) doesn't work, I put in Disk1 but it says: No bootable medium found! Please insert a bootable medium and reboot.
If you had bothered to actually READ the release page:
To Install: Windows 3.1 requires an installation of either MS-DOS or PC-DOS and we recommend using MS-DOS 6.22 if you are unsure of a version.
Which version is 3.10.104? (RTM Upgrade, not Eastern European)
