  • Fixed. Thanks for pointing that out.
  • See my other post.
  • Online malware does not run on Windows 3.1. So no, it will not protect it, but you won't get it on there anyway. It WILL protect against viruses from that time period that may still be floating around on old floppy disk or downloadable disk image…
  • If you have problems getting access to BetaArchive, take it up with THEM. This is not the place to discuss it. Quite frankly, it is dead simple to get access. Oh, boo hoo, you can't just stay on your precious iPhone and send them virus infected I…
  • This is a useless garbage installed copy. Redump from your original disks. You DO have original disks, right?

  • We don't normally add shareware to the Winworld archive unless there is some specific benefit to the community. Simcga is available in many, many shareware archives, and was (and still is) a very popular program. BTW, the guy who wrote it is a regul…

  • I think everyone here knows how to put files in an ISO themselves.
  • 1: Unless you are using the IBM 1.04 OEM, you must copy the mouse.drv from Windows 2.03 and place it on to your Windows 1.x disk BEFORE installing. Then install Windows. 2: It seems one must use DOS 3.x or later for the PS/2 mouse driver to work. …
  • There is no sense worrying about BA rules here. Whoever submitted it in the first place may have shared it elsewhere. Common stuff winds up floating around anyway. Whatever BA does to their members is their problem. That is just the way it is.
  • Ok, enough about this. This stuff can be found elsewhere. I'd suggest eBay, but someone will probably complain that waiting for the right item to come up or spending a few bucks is also unreasonable. If you have issues with BA, take it up on thei…
  • Great, it looks like Mega changed their UI so they can advertise more. They rrreeaally want people to sign up (so much for privacy!)
  • There are some photos posted over here: https://deskthority.net/viewtopic.php?t=22030 That doesn't show quite as much of the warehouse section as the video did did, probably because they can't get through there now. It looks like even more of a …
  • Most Windows 95 CDs are not bootable. When Windows 95 was releases, typical existing PCs did not support booting from CD-ROMs. It is easy to make your own bootable CD, but on real hardware, floppies are preferable since you often need to edit things.
  • Hmm, it looks like there is supposed to be some more clipart bundled with these 1.10 versions. Really needs a proper dump and scans. Also could use any 1.0 for Windows if that version existed.
  • It has a "toast" extension. It was probably created with Adaptec/Roxio Toast and it is probably just an ISO file. Rename the extension to ISO and try burning it.
  • Then what "information" would you put in a Wiki? Product and release information? That's already in the library. Tutorials? We use the forum for that, and if we had enough posts (we don't currently) we would create a sub-forum. Screenshots? We also …

  • They are at it with this popup shit again? The really annoying this is I still have an unopened unused Windows 7 package that I paid good $$$ for. Since this stuff turns in to a hardware facehugger, I was waiting to build the "perfect" system for…

  • The library database basically IS a structured "wiki". Although I'm the only one who ever edits it. If anyone has information they think should be added to a product or release, please post about it in the software forum or the product's comments…
  • That seller with the Eagles has piles of cool machines, although he wants a tad much and would get more attention if he sold them individually rather than in lots: https://www.ebay.com/sch/Computers-Tablets-Networking/58058/m.html?_ssn=jonnyadler&a…
  • 8 inch drives can usually be found on eBay fairly easily, but they will usually cost a lot if they are tested and warranted as working. The full heights also weigh a ton. For archival purposes, ideally one should use one of the later half height …
  • I forget, was that one of the 3.5" 2.88mb disks? Or was it just 1.44mb?
  • It's also a "demo" version (may or may not be different from regular), and has no manuals. I have no idea who they think will buy it at that price. No collector would want to put something that ratty on a pedestal for that price. Nobody will be usin…
  • Ah, so you grabbed that Samna Word III, I saw that out there the other day and it disappeared just before I was about to grab it myself. Not too bad of a price, compared to what they were asking for other stuff. If that III manual is three-ring ple…
  • Keep in mind a lot of eBay sellers are actual junk dealers. They pick random stuff out of the trash or such, then post it for absurd prices, and they get enough rich idiots buying the actual less common stuff, that they think the rest should be wort…
  • NEC APC software was on 8" floppy. Much generic CP/M-80 software was distributed on 8" disk in a "standard"-ish format, Although since almost every single 5.25" CP/M system used its own oddball disk format, most generic CP/M-80 titles are archive…
  • Absolutely nothing happens when you click one of the mirror links? Try a different web browser. Well, I guess you don't have to have a floppy drive depending on what you want to do with it, but that shouldn't stop you from buying a stack of flopp…
  • That's a really nice one. Thanks!
  • Quite right, it was something automatically generated by Microsoft from their old KB stuff, so there were a lot of errors, typos, merged names, unintentional third party products, and so on. Still, it is a more complete list from that era than anyth…
