Hyper-V Program Manager
Well - now that we have Windows 3.11 up and running under Virtual PC with sound and SVGA video support - the next challenge is to get this sucker on to the Internet.
First there are a bunch of updates you will need to download (many thanks to x-com who posted these links - saving me from having to search around for them tonight). You will need:
Windows 3.11 network drivers:
The Windows 3.11 TCP/IP stack:
Internet Explorer 5.01 for Windows 3.11:
You will also need to have the install disks for Windows 3.11 handy.
You will probably also want to get WinZip for Windows 3.11 (http://wiki.oldos.org/Downloads/Windows3x - at the bottom of the page) so that you can unzip the files inside of the virtual machine. To get all of these files into the virtual machine you can use floppies, a CD, an .ISO or my favorite - folder sharing (Note - in order to use DOS folder sharing under Windows 3.11 - you will need to load VMADD386.SYS in your config.sys file. VMADD386.SYS is included in the DOS Additions that shipped with Virtual PC 2004 SP1).
It would be best to copy them all to a temporary location (like 'C:\TEMP').
Now - that wasn't too hard was it? :-)
Here are some screen shots for your patience:
First, thanks for thsi blog post!
I've followed the steps but I cannot get networking under Win 3.11 to work.
In step 21 I was not asked for installation disks. Meaby because I have all the setup files on C: drive.
In step 23 I was unable to start Win 3.11 normally (the win command in DOS). It displays the welcome screen and hangs. The only way I can start Windows is running win /N (without networking), but then I can't connect to the Internet obviously. I've also tried /B (to get bootlog.txt) but it remained empty.
I'm running W3.11 under Win7 in VirtualPC. Networking is set to NAT.

Dear Ben, it installed, but when I boot into Windows, it doesn't work. Here's the DOS part of boot-up:
Error loading device driver CFGDRVR0.
Error 7308: The driver file could not be found.
CFGDRVR0 was not loaded.
