    Hi
    I’m trying to setup Windows 3.1. After finishing the Windows Setup, it starts Windows and asks me do I want to run the tutorial. I skip the tutorial, the Windows setup has finished and I’m back to DOS screen. But when I try to start Windows via win.com file, Win3.1 logo appears then it returns me to DOS screen with this error.

    In setup file, everything looks OK. Any ideas?

    Maybe some versions of win3.11 have problems. I use win3.11 fr workgroups and works well. I installed it from floppy images

    Can you please send me your Windows 3.1 .mgc file?

    Unfortunately I didnt add mounting floppies to ui, you must do it in expert settings, command looks like this :

    “WINST” is folder with floppy images

    [autoexec]
    mount c: “/storage/emulated/0/Download/WINST”
    imgmount a: “/storage/emulated/0/Download/WINST/1.img” “/storage/emulated/0/Download/WINST/2.img” “/storage/emulated/0/Download/WINST/3.img” “/storage/emulated/0/Download/WINST/4.img” “/storage/emulated/0/Download/WINST/5.img” “/storage/emulated/0/Download/WINST/6.img” -t floppy

    change to a: and start installation

    then when you are asked during installation for another floppy, press “change cd” from general settings

    I’m a big noob at this. :/
    I used
    [autoexec]
    @Echo Off
    mount c: /storage/3FFF-5C16/_MS-DOS/C/
    imgmount a:
    /storage/3FFF-5C16/_MS-DOS/Win31/Disk01.img
    /storage/3FFF-5C16/_MS-DOS/Win31/Disk02.img
    /storage/3FFF-5C16/_MS-DOS/Win31/Disk03.img
    /storage/3FFF-5C16/_MS-DOS/Win31/Disk04.img
    /storage/3FFF-5C16/_MS-DOS/Win31/Disk05.img
    /storage/3FFF-5C16/_MS-DOS/Win31/Disk06.img -t floppy
    a:

    And still got this:

    Hmm maybe you can try download another installation files. And you can try both cores (svn and normal), maybe there is difference

    Must be something with your floppy images. It’s working fine for me, too. Windows 3.11 for Workgroups. ?
