Re: Ways to run 16-bit Windows and MS-DOS applications on modern Windows.

You do realize your 'generic installshield 3 installer' links back to our forum, right? So unless you are trying to gather clicks for some community, why not link directly to the forum post here? as for the others, this looks like a cheap gather some random links and dump them here... For the Insta...

Ways to run 16-bit Windows and MS-DOS applications on modern Windows. Plus a bonus, 8-bit Microsoft BASIC on Windows.

Win3mu, allows 16-bit Windows programs to be ran on 64-bit Windows OSes. It is an open source WIP project (so, many things are yet to be implemented), but it might be dead. This is incredible useful for Windows apps made for Windows versions before Windows for Workgroups 3.11 (the first 32-bit Windo...

Re: Is it okay, if I upload a pre-configured ReactOS Virtual Machine to archive.org?

To be just a tiny bit more accurate, the license requires that if you distribute binaries, you're required to offer the sources used to build those binaries to anyone that you distributed those binaries to. To my knowledge, the reason that ThFabba seems to indicate that you only need to do that if ...

Re: Will ReactOS eventually support 16-bit Windows apps?

That is for DOS apps, I'm talking about 16-bit Windows apps (mainly used in pre-Windows 3.1 apps and installers for 32-bit Windows). @MugenFighter, look at these online slides: https://slideplayer.com/slide/4593594/ I cannot find at the moment the MSDN/Technet articles where they explain NTVDM and ...

If a software developer is interested in making their apps support ReactOS, what are something they should keep in mind?

I mean, it wouldn't be as simple as making sure it runs on Windows 10 due to different features that Windows 10 has which ReactOS, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003 doesn't have.

You are free to redistribute ReactOS under the terms of its license. Which, in short, just says that if you redistribute binaries based on non-official sources, you must also make those sources available. So yes, it's completely fine to publish VM images.
Thanks, I appreciate the information.

Re: Will ReactOS eventually support 16-bit Windows apps?

ReactOS has a process called NTVDM, which allows ReactOS to run 16-bit apps and games. I don't know how completed it is, but I know quite of bit of 16-bit games were running with it. No one is really focused on it right now, as everyone seems to be more focused on fixing MM/CC, 64-bit support, USB/...

Will ReactOS eventually support 16-bit Windows apps?

Basically, I have found some old freeware and shareware for Windows 3.1, Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows 98SE that Windows 10 no longer supports. So, I wanted a legal way to use these, but Microsoft doesn't offer one. I could use my old Windows 98SE computer, but transferring files to and from i...

Re: It's been a few months since I last checked out ReactOS.

Just a week ago, they merged all of Trevors NTFS work into the main respo. Don't know if they have any plans of releasing it in the next update or mot. Other then that, not really anything new. 2 months isn't a long time. I guess that something could be started more than 2 months ago, but have a bi...

Has there been any good news in terms of development. I didn't stay up to date. I think I last checked out ReactOS exactly two months ago.

Has anyone tested ReactOS on bootleg, knock off, or generic computers or laptops? There are a lot of no name chinese computers from chinese direct to consumer sites (I'm not going to mention any, but search "chinese websites to buy stuff", if you're interested). It would be interesting to see if the...

Community Development

Okay let's say I am a ordinary ReactOS user with programming knowledge (not an official dev though), now let's say I found a bug or missing feature that I wanted fixed in ReactOS. So, I submit a bug report or ask about it on the forums. If then, for example, it was a small rare bug or something the ...
