We've got SkiFree! What more could you possibly want? :P

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.

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.

Too weird. I was just working on this! Download FF 2.0.0.11 and extract the initial .exe file. Then run the setup.exe in the extracted folder. You actually get the splash screen but when clicking the "Next" button, nothing happens. I am going to try and run FF 4.0 and see if that behaves differently... or at all.

Quick Edit: After downloading FF 4.0 I found an actual Firefox.exe file, which means no installer to worry about. Could this work? right now my error is:
