Win 3.1 Virtual Machine RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to create a Windows 3.1 virtual machine under Windows 7, in order to upgrade some old files and documents. The problem is that I only have upgrade disks for DOS 6 and 6.22, which will not install, as I don't have a previous MS version on the virtual machine. Is there a full install version of these old DOS versions available on TechNet?

    I have already tried installing Win 3.1 on top of FreeDOS, in a virtual machine. Win 3.1 refuses to run on top of a non-MS operating system.

  • If you have a TechNet Subscription, MS-DOS 6.22 is available from the TechNet Subscriber download site (under 'Operating Systems').
