[Windows 3.1 icon]

Microsoft Windows 3.1 is a graphical shell for the operating system MS-DOS, and was commonly used in the early and even late 1990s. It is very rare nowadays.

Programs on this site noted as working under Windows 3.1 should work under later versions of Microsoft Windows as well—although this has not been tested with most of the programs, there should not be any problems running them under at least Windows XP, and they will probably work under Windows Vista as well.

If you try to run a Windows 3.1 program and you get an error message saying that Program name.exe or one of its components cannot be found, you most likely do not have the necessary Visual Basic 3 runtimes installed.
