Hey, the 1.x releases are really intresting, ive already upped some screenshots
on my website if somebody is intrested:

http://os-history.de/betas/1xbeta.html

the toastytech screens are on another build, sadly... but whatever, the DR5 has
the graph.exe and the chart.exe anywaysnd they work (demo only so no
enterable information as it seems), but i think everybody here will love it

anyways :D

also visit http://microsoftwindowscollectionbook.com/, i think he will offer
some good things about that in some days :D

1. Finally, a non-Whistler RAF.
2. Finally, some builds for which RAW/RAF's were created in the first place.
3. Finally, Win 1.x pre-releases. (+the Premiere Edition which was leaked previously).

It might work in Virtual PC, but it won't work if you use MS-DOS 7.1.

Nope, it wont work in VPC07. Over the last days i tied like a billion emulators to get it working,
the BETA runs best on Bochs and the ALPHA and the DR5 run only on PCem (you have to emulate
a IBM machine for that).

Since you have to configure PCem and have to get
some ROM files for it, here are some pre-installed versions of the 2 alphas: link

Just extract everything and open the PCem.exe ;)

How to start the DR5: type path C:\windows\bin then go to C:\windows\test and run mswin

How to start the alpha: go to C:\windows\test and run win

I was totally expecting another Whistler release...I was really not looking forward to another Whistler release as well. However, this was totally unexpected, and is pretty cool :)

Shame it (Devel#5) won't work in VPC, it would have been nice if it could. Do we know why? Is there not anything that can be fixed?

And, do we know if it would work on real hardware?

If you download my installers from my website.

It install the following (each one)

- Windows DR5 or Alpha (depends wich you download)
- The PCem program including source and roms
- OpenAL32.dll fix

CAUTION! When uninstalling, its removes ALL THREE items (including the OpenAL32.dll), so if you installed both, and remove only 1 then you need to manually reinstall the OpenAL32.dll with the Openinstaller package from the creative website, or reinstall my application.

How do we know it won't work on VPC?

Have we tried it with MS-DOS 2.x on it, or tried it on real hardware? What exactly is it that it requires that VPC doesn't have?

EDIT: I set up a DOS 2.11 VHD under VPC, and now the only problem is the mouse driver.

Windows DR5 and Alpha will only work if you have a MouseSystems Serial Mouse, and VPC only supports PS/2 Mice.

Windows 1.0 Beta won't work in VPC, I set up a MS-DOS 5.0 VHD, and when the beta was installing there was a screen that said "Setup is setting up Windows" Or something like that. At that screen I think nothing happened.
