I still have a few customers that use Dos 6. Even in Windows This first attempt to move beyond the operating system’s DOS roots introduced many features we recognize in Windows today.

I really would like to play Goosebumps again, bought that for my kids when they were young but it only runs in Win 95, I’ve had no luck making it work in Win Getting that kind of hardware to work could be difficult in Windows 3. So I used a Win 95 upgrade CD and installed that but still no drivers to work.

These are the old soundcards I have: They really aren’t “soundblasters” at all, but Ensoniq PCI sound cards after Creative bought them out and applied the Soundblaster name to xsc338a You can have lines to emulate a soundblaster along with the SB emulation driverwhen running in DOS Mode in Windows, but you won’t find legacy support for lans.

But yes, as Mark says, drivers now hard to find. I once built a computer that had a quad boot. Had a rummage, clearout and made an inventory of all my old computer shit today.
Yep, I had to go through all that crap for that Windows 3. I actually covered that here, several years ago: I think I threw it out, but I had a good old fashioned legacy SoundBlaster 16 card. I still have the floppies for DOS 6.
Lab ran ok but couldn’t get audio or video drivers to work on the host Socket A machine. I do have a couple of old PCI soundblasters, I’ll have to check out the model numbers.

My life is slipping away I’m aging every day But even when I’m grey I’ll still be grey my way. This one person uses Court Reporting softwear that needs a hardware key plugged into one of the Com ports.
You could download a driver “update” on the web, but it was incomplete. Xp, Win98, Dos 6. I still have disks here for Windows 1. They did not distribute them freely, a CD came with the card and that was that. I didn’t know that, all I knew back then were ini and conf files.
And disks for DOS 5.
