Win86emu supports 16-bit software? Or was there a 32-bit SkiFree version somewhere? You can be sure as hell the original 1991 version wasn't 32-bit, and I remember playing it on DOS-based Windows without Win32s.

EDIT: Never mind, I didn't know about the 32-bit version. I don't expect mamaich has re-implemented the whole NTVDM.

Sure there is 32-bit version. Guy who coded Ski Free in 1991 found source code in 2005 and recompiled it for 32-bit systems.

Question Support for Sonos Desktop Controller and Spotify
Hi there, fantastic work! Would it be possible to Support Sonos Desktop Controller and/or Spotify Windows Client in the future?

Thanks,

Thumbs up
really a cool project, a minor suggestion, would you please consider to add a command line parameter support, so we can add a shortcut in start menu, say 'Launcher.exe abc_x86.exe'?

Running BlueStacks
Would this allow us to run bluestacks on our rt devices? So bummed that they only released it for Windows 8 and not RT.

I would love bluestacks, but it's so buggy on it's own at this point. I have been playing with ps1, N64, and GBA emulators but I am not as good at this as I thought. I did install Win2000 in VirtualBox to pull out the DLLs and even with all of them most things error out,

Too slow for that right now. Better off creating a bluestacks type system running on windows RT natively.

Just for the hell of it, I tried installing Firefox 1.08. I wouldn't bother reporting except some weird stuff happened:
1. Running the installing through win86emu started a self-extractor program that ran extremely slowly and at max CPU usage, after around a minute it had yet to show a single bar of progress. Extracting using 7z took only a few seconds for the whole thing.
2. Running the extracted installer "worked" except that the installer program tossed up an error MessageBox: "File not found: install.ini". After that it exited (errorcode 0). This is weird because install.ini is definitely present in the extraction folder, and can be opened successfully. I tried copying it to the win86emu folder or even the system32 folder, just in case; no dice. Whatever the reason might be, the installer apparently can't open that file.
