I checked. They don't offer it anymore... At no site anywhere, for that matter!
You can buy it on ebay for a couple of bucks though:

ebay - Win 3.11 for $1.99 (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=11229&item=7139724686&rd=1)

Are you sure? :D

Only MSDN subscribers can get it from microsoft.

I'd rather pay the 1.99 on ebay instead of paying the huge MSDN annual subscription fees to M$ if you don't mind :D

I rather pay none. :D

Make somebody else pay for you. :ok:

or ask someone with it already ^^ worked for me :D

hmm, does that installer report the missing files? I could give you the ones needed if you can tell me.... (got MSDN also) or is that illigel?

Umm... yes, it most likely is!

Athough "procuring" a Disk 5 is too! :D

crap well sorry man, don't want to get in trouble... email microsoft and tell em your problem. They might help... I think.... maby not >.<. If they do, they will send you a cd with Windows 3.11 on it, just hope you have your cd-rom drivers installed.

I had the same problem, with disk 6. got it from some website over google.
i could give you the files. actually, that would of course be illegal, but, to be honest, i
wouldn't give a f*ing cent for microsoft :ranting:
Did you know that in that virus thingy that terrified the world about a year ago they found a message in the code "Bill Gates stop making money and fix your software"
I think they were right. Anyway, maybe M$ is going to sue me, so i'd better change my name :whistle: before they find out :ph34r:
