The real reason that this thing was pulled was because of a major bug. The bug is that when you would do dir /p it would delete everything after the first page. This was a programming error when del was switched with a little code from dir /p. this is the reason why windows 1.00 was pulled.

I knew it was because of a bug but I never knew what the bug was. Now I do :)

Where would they have done this error? The only place where this could have occurred is command.com that contains all the built-in DOS commands, and this file entirely belongs to DOS, it has nothing to do with Windows 1.0x. or its "MS-DOS window" msdos.exe because this uses the DOS interpreter as well AFAIK.

is there a source for this? Wikipedia states that it was a keyboard problem (i think)

But was 1.00 ever actually released?

I doubt it. 1.00 has never been found. If you DO have a copy please share.

And why are you keeping it safe? This is a sharing community, thats the point of sharing these betas to keep them alive and around.

I have an outside source who says his claim is total crap. However, he can prove us wrong by sharing it.

Remember, what you give you shall receive. Its only fair to share your things in return for letting you download from the FTP.

Can you post file dates and the CGA.LGO file please?

*looks back at the old OSBA "Windows 1.0 Discoveries" page*

If anyone believes they have found Windows 1.0 then they should take the followng steps before posting their discovery:

1. Open up the Windows 1.0 archive and find CGA.LGO
2. Open CGA.LGO and search for "1.01, 1.02, 1.03, or 1.04". If any of those version numbers are found in CGA.LGO then you have a fake.
3. If you did NOT find those version numbers then please make a post here on the forums stating that you followed the procedure and could not verify it as being false.\.\

Fake. The only way to prove you have something is to reveal. I could say "OMGs! I have Windows 3.15 you guys!" and it could just be a Paint job.

You want us to believe you? Take pictures, send us a copy of the CGA.LGO file, or even take a picture of the disk. Teh internet is full of lies, and message board text proves it.

Sending CGA.LGO or any other file will be of no use, it is easy for
people to hex edit sections & release it, as have seen before :roll:
Unless you have a 16 bit compiler to check header its a waste without
complete package.

I reccomend you don't release it with any haxor branding, just place it somewhere and say *here* is the download link... That way people who want it will find it :D
