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).

Could somebody upload the Windows /286 2.03 and the Windows /386 2.11 floppys? They are not on the ftp.

Thanks

How much I know, version 2.03 was in one variant and had no indexes "/286" or "/386", division was only in versions 2.1 and 2.11

Code:
; These are information you could find in SETUP.DAT of the old SETUP.
; They have to be changed for a runtime version or Windows/386

[data]
;  Name of the Windows startup program, may be changed for a runtime version
;  WIN86.COM determines setup for Windows/386


Thats from the setup.inf of 2.03. I thought there maybe is a 286 version, too.

All the same, I for the first time hear about division Windows 2.03 on 386 and 286.. I think, that was unique version 2.03. At any beta community I did not meet mentions of existence of two versions 2.03 (a simple example - winhistory.de). Look at a box from 2.03, and you will not see on it a index /286 or /386. The same it is possible to tell about bootscreens. At versions 2.1 and 2.11 division on /286 and /386 is expressed more than at 2.03. Unlike versions 2.1 and 2.11, 2.03 can normally work on 286-th processor without the expanded memory, and can (after corresponding configuring) work in 386-Enchanced Mode, that is it unites functions /286 and /386. Hence, it is possible to assume, that division was not. But this my opinion, I can be mistaken.
