Welcome everybody!


If anybody remember waiting for WINDOWS 3.5 project by me (anybody waited?), you'll probably like this project.

As far as I know, nobody made a Windows 3.1 setup editor with bundled add-ons. So i thought "Hey, i remember WINDOWS 3.5, why not make a wizard from a project?" and there it is.



You need to download Windows for Workgroups script EVEN if you use Windows 3.1x (NOT wfw).



All scripts can be downloaded from WinBuilder on THIS server:
CODE
asiekierka.boot-land.net/updates




It hasn't been discussed elsewhere in THIS form, but here's a link to WINDOWS 3.5 thread: http://www.boot-land.net/forums/index.php?...view=getnewpost

-HOWTO-
Make directory for Source and Target.
In source directory, put files from ALL of your Windows 3.1x/WfW 3.1x diskettes/floppy images.
Set WinBuilder's Source directory to the directory where you put files from Win/WfW3.1x setup,
and target directory to one you made.
Download the WinCust directory from asiekierka.boot-land.net/updates.
Set up the script.
And now, just, BUILD IT!
Then burn files from target directory to a CD.
Make a floppy with MS-DOS 6.22 and CD drivers.
Load the floppy.
Type: "SYS A: C:" without the quotes.
Then load setup.
Hooray, you're DONE!

Current version: v0.8 (1.0 beta).
WARNING: I wouldn't do any more software. I will release only bugfixes. I just don't have any ideas. If you want to do one, feel free.

Thank you,
Adrian Siekierka, 2007.

BTW: You can make your own addons! Send me them in zipped form on asiekierka@gmail.com. (they can't have EXEs in).

Hi asiekierka!

Please add all the above informations on the first topic, this discussion can surely become long and it would be nice for others to understand how it is going right on the first topic.


Sounds a promising project. It would be nice to have a set of scripts to customize win31 to our likings - it's one of my all time favorite OS

Good work! (IMG:http://www.boot-land.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Hi Asiekierka!

You've forgot a detail on script.project

It should have a Level=1 value instead of 3 - otherwise people downloading the minimum profile don't get this file and never get to see the project listed..
