Windows 3.1 - Microsoft (1992) Tested By: iamthejake2000
runnable - playable - supported
DOSBox version: 0.65 (supported)
This Battle Station is Fully Operational (2011-05-14 18:12)
Managed to get install of 3.1 running flawlessly. No crashing after using DOS programs and no hangs.
In your config, set up with svga_s3 and sb16 audio. I installed the vga drivers for the S3 Trio 64V, which allows 64,000 color (high color) at 1024x768 resolution. For the audio, make sure to use the win3.1 installer for sound blaster 16 -the DOS installer messes up, so you must use the installer made for 3.1. If you find the legit installer, the file name on the actual install folder should read "sb16w31".
Unfortunately, I don't know exactly where to scoop these drivers from on the internet. I own a legitimate copy of win 3.1 on floppies, and the drivers I have are literally from my old PC that I used to run back in 1998.

i had the same problem as bob bobato, but i found a webpage explaining about windows 3.1 with dosbox and besides explaining you all the installation proccess, that pages got links to drivers and using s3 driver resolve the problem of crashing after using a dos program and also it gives you the chance of changing your resolution and also you can use 256 colors.
by the way the webpage is http://vogons.zetafleet.com/viewtopic.php?t=9405
Works well enough (2008-04-25 00:02)
Works well enough, but if you try to use a DOS program through windows 3.1, it will work, but DOSbox will crash when you exit the program.

Works fine in VGA 640x480 16 color mode, can get SB16 drivers installed and working.
