I get a blinking cursor in Windows 3.1 when I try to start it up. I have used the /d switch but to no avail.

I'm aware that the VPC Guest Additions might conflict with Windows 3.1, specifically the Folder Sharing driver. Maybe you should try to comment it out and see what happens.

This usually means something has failed to load, usually a driver. Do a WIN /B, and then look at BOOTLOG.TXT to see what failed to load.

Looks like it had something to do with it. Removed it from my autoexec.bat and it booted perfectly fine.
However, trying to run it from within Windows, it gives an illegal operating error.
