  • There was also a build 1056, which was leaked by someone on BetaArchive back in 2014, but it's probably not 100% real. Build 999 is pretty much the only "real" build for Windows Nashville.

  • Build 1056 is just a Plus! pack based around Nashville's features.

  • yes, how exactly do i install? rebooting just left the vm on a black screen with a blinking gray line.

  • Please correct installation instructions. I can't get upgrade from Windows 95 OSR2, I'm upgrading it from Windows 3.1.

    Nashville installs easily as an upgrade from Windows 95 OSR2 in PCem, but it will not upgrade if Windows 95 is installed on a FAT32 partition.

  • Thanks for clarifying this. Nashville does not support FAT32. Updated the entry.

  • Can you please make the instructions more clear? I have no idea how to run the setup on Windows 3.1. I want to use Windows 3.1 Because I experience problems on Windows 95.

    You'll need cd-rom support in Windows 3.1 (use ms-dos 6.22 with cd-rom support), then run setup from your D drive.

    Thanks, it worked finally! I really appreciate the help.

  • @val123039 You're welcome.

  • Everytime I boot up Windows "96" after installing it I get a protection error. Is there a way to fix this error?

  • I've never tried running it, I'm not really that interested in old versions of windows that didn't get released, unless they add something special, like Windows 2000 RC1 for DEC Alpha.

    That being said, if the code is very similar to windows 95 code, which I bet that it is, it could have issues with processors that are too fast. Later version of windows 95 had a patch for this. I have no idea if it's that's the same issue, but it's worth a look.

  • If it's in a VM (and either of the following conditions apply to the host), 350+ MHz AMD machine or 1.7+ GHz Intel machine, then it's probably the same race condition as Windows 95. Try the win95 CPU patch as it's supposed to work with all versions of the OS.

    I tried it, but the problem persists.

  • Then you want to run this in an emulator.

    I'm doing exactly that on VirtualBox.

    VirtualBox is a hypervisor, not emulator. You should use something that emulates classic hardware like PCem or 86box.

    Where can I get x86box then?

    Typing "86box" into a search engine is the preferred method but here it is anyway:

    https://86box.github.io/

    Note: OS requirement is wrong. It runs on Windows XP.

    O.K. Thanks!

    Official builds haven't supported XP for a while now, so no, it's not wrong. Build 1844 from September 20th 2019 is the first that no longer works on XP, because it uses a Windows 7 API call for grouping taskbar buttons. Later builds also call GetTickCount64, which is a Vista+ API call.
