The LGR Woodgrain 486 PC is due for an upgrade... to the year 1992! I've got a boxed copy of Microsoft Windows 3.1 and a brand new Microsoft Mouse to enjoy so let's install everything on top of MS-DOS 6.22 and Windows 3.0 and have fun with Lode Runner and Print Shop Deluxe.

  • My recollection was that 3.1 mainly bought a 3D looking interface to Windows, plus some other minor improvements and included apps. But the big change was the "3D' look and feel.

  • Just found an old dell laptop that booted to ms-dos. Looking in the directory I could see some kind of windows installation. I managed to run the windows help file which brought up the GUI. I thought I had found a backdoor in the os...turns out I found the complete os, windows 3.1. Now I know all I need to do is type WIN at startup.

  • I'm using it. It's some emulators I'm interested in where 1% is Windows and otherwise MS-DOS. 2.16 GHz on a T60 is plenty. With all the files the diskettes are not needed. MS-DOS requires Fdisk to begin and we can have Windows 2000 and older Linux on the other partitions to ease up any file transfer problems.

  • Whay? no Oilcap? The game did come with Windows 3.11a, but stacker was removed, IIRC... this was before WinZip, too. Remember Moraff's World (DOS)? "Do you wish to dig a hole in the floor? It may take some time, but if you are trapped..." ... "The door is jammed" ... "A monster wants to help" ...

  • win 3.11 bas simple but it kinda just worked. i've been messing with it for year barely knowing anything about computers and i never managed to break it once. in comparison i had to reinstall win98 literally every 2 weeks, it would constantly break for any reason. no internet yet to look for a solution, so windows reinstall was proven, reliable method of solving every problem.

  • So I got the PS/2 native ver of that mouse and I've been told these Microsoft Compatible mice don't need any specific drivers. Although SimCity and SimCity 2k (DOS) seem to not see them and SC2k wont even start. The seller I got it from said there wasn't any software for it but I see you seem to have proof that there was. Do you or anyone in the comments have any ideas of what I may be missing?

  • Win 3.1 was so crappy... the only things worth anything in it were the clock and the calculator lol.. Win 95 Was the first half decent Windows... it had a command prompt and could run DOS games with it & later DirectX 1.0 came and made hardware video decoding a thing on home PCs so that's when VCD's started being popular on PCs... fun times

I never in my life thought I'd be on PLworld watching videos of someone installing videos and doing the same IT work I was doing back in high school/college lol .. I started with 3.1 as well and have done so many of the same things as your videos .. thanks for letting me relive the experiences without an ounce of the frustration LOL
