I inquired into freedos and was told
that though it could be done...
there intention was not recreating dos
said they were aiming at more of a linux
check out open/dr dos it runs win3x just fine
wine programers and users
asure me that no further work will be done on win16
that wine runs 90% of win16 programs and
work on win 32,64,128,256,etc.. comes first logicly
yet my win16 programs did not seem to run right for them
they did not really know if they had been testing win16,win32 or win32s apps
and asured me that wine worked much better in the past...
3.1,95 and 98 are 16bit at the core and
win3x programs often use hardware directly
no true multitasking operating system can run win16 programs at full power
though the resources are availible
intention is not to create andor recreate
at most only to simulate and or emulate?
you have a volunteer to oppose repeating the same ideas again
I will continue using and programing in and for win3x
windows 3.1 ROCKS!
you know from 15 years of programing that all programs are flawed?
and you want to draw people from win3x?
your intentions are not quite clear yet
but your actions will soon clairify them
any thing that runs win32 or dos apps is capable of making win3x programs
linux,freedos,xp and even vista will work
if you are basic programer
then the various basic compilers might be of use to you
MSVB(dos,win16,win32s) or maby XBLite(win32s)
for asm you might
check out gwbasic(win16) as it's compiler takes asm
also flat assembler 1.67.29 for Windows(win32s) might be of interest
if self taught amatures such as myself can recreate cpl applets
then such simple tasks should be fun for you
work on recreating winsetup(dos&win16) needs done
as a smart programer with years of experience
how can you resist?
