Hi there

I couldn't find such topic here so I want to create a new.

Since MS-DOS 6.22 was one of most interesting things to me back in 90's (and sometimes still is if it comes about emulation), because it is known it allows to run Windows 3.xx without modding.

One a little awkward thing back then was the short list of supported languages which, which also was quite unclear due to rumours.


My question is following:

How many languages it really supports? Some people claimed about polish version, even I thought I once had such for a moment (can't remember well) so I can't be certainty sure.

Can anything be proved in that matter?


Thanks for any help

There might not be much languages other than Western languages like English, French, and German and a handful of other languages that might be supported like Simplified Chinese and Japanese.

Well there's Microsoft's own website which claims MS-DOS 6.22 was released in the following languages:

Arabic, Chinese-Simplified, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Korean, Norwegian, Portuguese-Portugal, Portuguese-Brazilian, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Thai-Enabled

There was certainly also DOS/V in Japanese (dunno why it's excluded from the list).

It seems that that site is not 100% accurate; for example, Windows 3.1 is available in Catalan and in that page doesn't seem to appear...

Thank you for all your helpful replies, I know MS website was not so accurate so I didn't mention it.

What is especially interesting is MS-DOS 6.21. The OEM versions was released as soon as the injunction in the Stac case arrived, but the upgrade versions was a different story and might be English-only.
