  • What happens if you try to run a DOS program? Does this even happen for simple 16-bit excutables? Try something like the Windows 3.1 CALC.EXE. Sort of a shot in the dark, but perhaps try disabling video acceleration. I have seen a really bad v…

  • Ok, corrected that. Thanks for pointing that out.
  • @Windows99SE said: I guess I have no choice. If this is the only option, so be it. Goodbye camera data... Just image the drive first. Dump the entire device with something like Linux "dd" (I don't keep up with all the tools on Windows…
  • @Windows99SE said: Damnit. I tried those internet DIY methods of fixing the black and ended up deleting everything I took on the camera, If you can still hook the camera up via USB or put the SD card in a reader, you might be able to …
  • @robobox said: Well, it is pretty old. Wheels are pretty old, but for some reason people keep using those. Those Canadian square wheels should have sold like hotcakes just for being "new".

  • For whatever it's worth, the 4.10.2150a build appears to be 100% identical to betaarchive's. It looks like they replaced their 4.10.2183a with a genuine CD dump, which is packaged a bit differently. Anyway virus scanners are bad about getting fal…
  • @Windows99SE said: Pretty sure that early screensavers were made to prevent the big CRTs from constantly displaying for a long time, therefore causing long-term CRT burn-ins. I think those were made on DOS or CP/M, but I am not sure. …
  • Ok, corrected that. Thanks for noticing.
  • When you plug it to the USB, does it just appear as a USB mass storage device? I've found that beats the heck out of anything that requires proprietary software. If so, any OS that supports OS and mass storage devices will work and should continue t…
  • Well, I would double check all of the controls just to be sure. Check to see if there are any on the back. Also test the monitor with a different computer just to make sure the computer isn't doing something whacky. Does this monitor have "on screen…
  • Ok, fixed. Thanks for pointing that out.
  • Pruned the duplicates. The answers you are looking for should be in our Archive Format Information
  • Went ahead and pruned it for you. If you hover your mouse over a post, a small "gear" icon will appear in the upper right that you can click on to bring up a menu that should let you edit or delete a post for up to a couple of hours after posting it…
  • This thread was getting dumb, so I removed all references about that other archive site, removed your e-mail address, and corrected your bad English. As far as I know these can be considered abandonware, so you are free to request and discuss the…
  • Updated title. Also as far as I can tell this is the "AT" release for 286+ AT and PS/2 systems. It looks like there were two separate 2.2 releases, one for PC/XT and one for AT/286. Presumably the 360k release would have the 8088/8086 PC/XT version.

  • I really don't see why they would open source it, although it would be interesting to see it finally ported to a few 8088/8086 platforms like the TI Professional Computer that (apparently) did not have Windows ports. Also, BTW, awful web site. An…
  • Yes, please, that would be great!
  • No, we don't need that here. BTW, one hell of a bump.
  • Here you go: https://winworldpc.com/product/mathtype MathType version 1.0 for Windows 2.1. I never could quite get all of the fonts to work right, but it is all in there.
  • I do recall seeing some Dell OEM plain 3.11 disks a long time ago, and they were labeled as "3.11". I recall some other OEMs shipped plain 3.11 but kept all of the external disk/manual branding as "3.1". I don't recall retail plain "3.11" on store s…
  • Thanks for clarifying this. Nashville does not support FAT32. Updated the entry.
  • I saw that howto you wrote. It was very informative. The main rules are here: https://forum.winworldpc.com/discussion/10445/winworld-forum-rules-and-information#latest although we don't spell everything out. That entire repackaging thing is ex…
  • That is a little odd, Windows 3.0 was fairly stable, at least as far as getting it set up and running. I'd suggest running some diagnostics such as CheckIt or Norton Diagnostics (part of the Norton Utilities). Use something like the old McAffe Sc…
  • 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…
