Forum rules


Please read the following rules before posting a download request in this area:

1. Don't post a request if you have under 10 posts as stated on the front page. If you do anyway, it will be deleted without further notice. This also applies to other members: If you see a request by someone with less than 10 posts and it hasn't been deleted yet, please don't reply to it.
2. Don't request for warez or any copyrighted software. Only betas (no matter how old or new) and finals of operating systems and applications that are at least 10 years old and therefore classified as abandonware are allowed to be uploaded to and shared on the BetaArchive FTP server.
3. If you have your own FTP server where you'd like other members to upload what you're looking for to, please don't post its login details in any open forum as that will probably lead to abuse. Post the login details in the Private Servers section instead.
4. Check that we don't already have the file on our FTP servers. If you don't have access to the FTP servers then ask someone who has (a moderator for example).

Never heard of this either.

Even if some programs might be converted, it won't work for all.
I think especially at Windows programs, which call functions in system dlls. 16bit Windows versions (3.1) don't have the whole API set which is provided by Windows 95

That's probably the same thing on other OSes, but I know less

You would need an emulator of sorts...

Writing a converted for the 32bit instruction set to 16bit would be near impossible for generic programs:Not to mention the problem with handling the non AX part of EAX; How do you handle extended memory such as that located in higher word of the EDX?

Simply put, its madness to write a generic converter.

A 16-bit Windows program should work on all 32-bit versions of Windows. If you're using Windows XP/2003/Vista, try Compatibility mode for the application (Right click EXE > Properties > Compatibility tab > "Run in compatibility mode for: Windows 95/98").

If you're using a 64-bit version of Windows, you'll have to resort to emulation utilities such as VMware, Virtual PC, QEmu, or Bochs and install a 32-bit or 16-bit OS such as Windows 3.1, Windows 95, or Windows 98.

If you really need to do that, you can use Borland Resource Workshop.

And for running 32bit programs on 16bit Windows - install Win32s

Anything checked :P
But don't Win32s just add the 32-bit stuff from NT3.5x to Win3.x?
