In November last year I wrote about the forgotten and obscure feature of early Windows 95 builds that lets you run Windows 3.1 in a window on Windows 95. Since then I was wondering if this would still work on the final build (950) of Windows 95, considering so much has changed since build 58s.

I won't spoil it.

I too ran Win 3.11 productivity software on my Os/2 dx2-66 machine with 8mb of ram, back in 1995/96. Wich was Microsoft office 4.2 and it ran well with that complete Win-3.11 installation under the hood.

When I think hard, there was something about 3.11 on 95 back then. Never got the time to use that feature, and as Os/2 died slowly, I switched to Windows98 in early 1999.
