Running Windows 3.1 Games


Recommended Posts

Been awhile since I asked this. Is there an easier way to play Windows 3.1 games. I know you can install windows 3.1 in dosbox and install the game within there. I just hoping there was a better way to play these types of games without that many steps (like sone sort of desktop icon or even launch the specific games from launchbox). Just wanted to see if there any any good solutions out there.

You just add the path to the .exe that you want to start in the run= field of WIN.INI (located in C:\Windows):


Whatever .exe you specify will run on startup.

Thanks for this info!

I now have only one issue with Myst, since it must require the CD, i guess.

So how do I write the Run= part...?

I thought it was -- C:\cd\AUTORUN\AUTORUN.EXE

But that didn't work.

Here's the game's folders...
