 PostPost subject: VGA & Sound configuration for Windows 3.11 in VMware        Posted: Tue Nov 13, 2007 11:06 pm 
Reply with quote
Question for those of you that run windows 3.11 in VMware...

Is there any way to enhance the default vga display?
I've tried to enhance display using the 3.11 default driver, but just display got messed up.

And I installed Sound Blaster 16 driver, but MIDI sound doesn't work.

Anyone had success? , then please help me.

I think that a vmware driver for 3.11 is out there somewhere, just google it. As for the midi, vmware has a history of midi issues. Is it really important?

Thank you for reply. ^^
I searched over and over again, but I couldn't find out appropriate VGA driver for VMware - Win3.11. And frankly speaking, MIDI in not so important to me.(But I heard MIDI sound can be heard if it is set correctly by manual setting on VMware-Win3.11).

I am sorry :oops: , I posted just "half" of the link.

You also need Ken Kato's Patch, here:

Wow~~~ IT WORKS~~ Great~~ ^^/
Thank you so much. :wink:

(ps)
For the first 2 time, I failed to install the patched vga driver because I got wrong SVGA.exe file(There are many different version & size of it on WEB.) However, I finally found correct file and made it !! ^^

Admin edit: Image made into a link. Please use the image uploader in future. It is a rule.
---> Ok. Sorry for the newbie behavior. ^^ I'll use image uploader from now on.

Is not the one on the gaby.de the correct one?

If not, please post a link to or details about the right one you got working, so that we can call this thread "complete".

Ok..^^

VGA Driver file on gaby.de seems to be for native Win3.11 on physical HDD.
(VMware doesn't support Win3.1 officially and I was able to use only 640x480 on 'VMware' with it)

And the necessary VGA driver files for 'Win 3.11 on VMware' are...

(1) Ken Kato's Patch
(The one you linked for me)
http://chitchat.at.infoseek.co.jp/vmwar ... #win31svga

(2) SVGA.EXE
(Ken Kato's Patch needs this file and it is not provided in Ken Kato's Patch)
http://oldfiles.org.uk/powerload/download/svga.exe

This really works!! (1024x768, 256 colors)
Thanks again to jaclaz~
