  • Awesome. Thank you very much!
  • Yes, absolutely! We always want to get authentic dumps from as many different disk formats as possible. You will need to temporarily place the file on a file hosting site and either PM me a link to it or post the link here. When I get a chance, I…
  • The Norton Utilities V1.00 Floppy Disk 5.25" Vintage https://www.ebay.com/itm/133248643796?nordt=true Asking price is nuts, but it is something to look at, and it appears to be from the original owner, so even though it does not say "1.00" on it, …
  • Your question makes little sense. To install Plus in a VM, simply tell your VM software to use the ISO image for the emulated CD drive, and then run setup from the emulated CD drive within the VM. If a CD drive does not appear available within your …
  • @DevanDrake99 said: I wanted to use Autodesk 3D Studio 4.0 for DOS (https://winworldpc.com/product/3d-studio/4) on PCem, but it stops working and shows up SentinelPro must be plugged into parallel port. Are there any LPT passthrough emulators for…
  • We don't have that, it was just an erroneous record. Cleaned it up. Thanks for pointing that out. (As I recall, the old system would not let me change it)
  • lack of QC? I'd wager it was intentional. Have I mentioned Microsoft is evil?
  • I don't have a good way to go back and add rejection notes to threads, so I usually don't post reasons. But glancing at this, it appears to be a crufty installed folder. That means it is almost certainly incomplete and missing files, even if YOU …
  • Step 1: Learn to read Step 2: Read our WinWorld Archive Format Information post https://forum.winworldpc.com/discussion/10444/winworld-archive-format-information and other announcements pinned in the news section. Step 3: Research any remaining q…

  • Because this is an OEM version, you only have three choices: 1:IBM Personal System/2 Model 30 2:IBM Personal System/2 Model 50, 60, 80 3:IBM Personal System/2 Model Display Adapter Card or Display Adapter 8514/A I think normally you would sele…
  • Big companies can quietly pay Microsoft $$$$ to extend support specifically for that company. I have no information that all such support has stopped for XP/and the POS version.
  • @robobox said: Keep in mind that even if a browser chooses to support an operating system beyond the OS reaching EOL, that does not mean you are going to be 100% safe. Keep in mind that even if you are running Windows 11 with Chrome 9492,…
  • To edit posts, hover the mouse over your post and a "gear" menu with an edit option should appear. Very unintuitive, but that's the "modern" web for you. Posts can be edited for up to a couple of hours after posting. "6.10.0.6100" is the version …
  • Your post makes little sense. I think 47 cups of coffee was enough for you :P Exactly which download are you talking about? BIN/CUE is the CD-ROM format. It is similar to ISO, but usually contains multiple tracks, which ISO does not support. U…
  • Windows vista has never been on this site. There are some betas that have been on Winworld forever, although we probably won't be adding to those.
  • This is an old thread. The current serials thread is located here: https://forum.winworldpc.com/discussion/6677/new-serials-compilation
  • An HTML page like what Vetusware has would actually help search engines index new releases quickly. But it could be worse, we could be exclusively pushing the new release info to Twitter (barf!). Personally, I would actually like to have some way…

  • A tad bit more success, trying a few different VGA cards, I found that a MCT-VGA-16 (Chip labeled TD3588A) seems to work. Also, that error under DOS 4 turned out just to be a warning that the FILES= was not set high enough.
  • Ok, slight progress getting it to run. I discovered that it seems to finish loading successfully under DR-DOS 6. Unfortunately, it seems to be doing something screw pot with the video that is not fully supported in emulators or even real hardware. …
  • Because just dropping in the Windows 2 mouse driver is too damn hard apparently.
  • Yea, but it is just a tgz file, so I don't know if it is complete.
  • Today is seems DuckDuckGo has started requiring "higher" encryption.
  • Yes, that would be an excellent one to add.
  • Welcome to the wonderful world of MSIE! This was painfully common. That is the folly of "integrating" with the OS, replacing core files during install. The official fix was to reformat and re-install Windows 95. Even re-running Win95 setup as an "up…
  • @ibmpc5150 said: Software Bride https://www.ebay.com/itm/Software-Bride-5-25-Media/371896520494?nordt=true BTW, that is actually "Software Bridge" a universal document converter program from Systems Compatibility Corporation"
  • Personally, I got tired of Firefox the moment I had to start beating it up just to show the standard menu bar. Of course, they would not need to hide it if idiots would stop using short screen monitors. BTW, they have always tried to hide their E…
  • Time for Gopher to make a resurgence then? I also noticed the other day that Wikipedia is requiring newer HTTPS encraption now. Not too surprising. It will actually load in RetroZilla, which includes some of the newer encryption, but what really …
