      Hmm, as a former Windows 3.x user your post has peaked my interest.

      I have no been able to dig up the SDK for download but I do see it listed on Microsoft's website which states what extras were included for the Windows 3.11 version of the SDK.  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/115764  Microsoft only recently stopped support for Windows 3.x so it has to be floating around somewhere.  It was used for many embedded systems.

          In one of my side projects, I’m setting up a small 486 system with Windows 3.1 and the development tools. Actually, it’s a really nice setup at this point: WFWG 3.11, QEMM 7.5, Internet Explorer 3, PC Tools, and the MSTCP stack.

          I have a basic question. I have the SDK/DDK for Windows 3.1 which is dated 3/23/92 (Windows 3.1) but the system I’m building is Windows for Workgroups 3.11 (11/1/93). A software version history document from Microsoft seems to indicate that the core system files had been updated between versions, but it doesn’t indicate what exactly changed. It appears that WFWG 3.1 was the network-enabled version of Windows 3.1 (same core files), which was then followed by minor-step upgrade for both products which had new core files (gdi, user, kernel and win386).

          Does anyone have the SDK/DDK for WFWG 3.11 that I could get a copy of? If so, please let me know. Thanks.
