Why Win3mu?

The goal of Win3mu is to provide an easy way to play 16-bit Windows 3 games on modern versions of Windows - especially 64-bit Windows which doesn't support 16-bit at all.

Compared to Other Solutions

Existing solutions like DosBox and virtual machines are great but Win3mu offers a couple of unique advantages:

The Downside

The downside is that many programs don't run correctly yet.

The challenge here is the magnitude of the Windows API - over 1,100 methods, hundreds of messages and lots of little quirks and odd behaviours.

And that's not to mention bugs in the 16-bit programs themselves - all of which need to be handled.

Still, support for more games will only improve over time.
