Okay, for older 16-bit Windows builds, like Windows 3.1 for example, how would you go about determing the version numbers (the actual build no.?)
I remember when Obrasilo told me, but it's been a while and I can't remember. Any help is greatly appreciated. :D

Can this be checked from the installation media? (Without installing first). I've checked all the disks and can't seem to find user.exe.


Edit: Okay, I found user.ini, it says "Version = "31.040". Is this what you meant?

No, the string from the user.ini is something else.

Probably the user.exe is compressed. Search for a file called USER.EX_, copy it to
C:\ (or somewhere else) and extract it using the command: expand C:\USER.EX_ C:\user.exe

Ahh, yes. Got it. Thank you!
