Eh?
Ok, so I got it installed, did as you say, executed "win" and the Windows 3.0 shows, then a black line over it showing thecmmand prompt again.

Is it not booting into win properly or do I need to do something else? I was about 7 years old last time I used Win 3 so I can't remember how the hell it works.

Can this app be used in landscape mode?

Is apps requiring a 486 running good? At least with the same performance as a 486SX/25?
