I write EPoS Software for small shops who can not afford the new Windows 7 machines
And some of the machines I get can handle windows 98 normally but I have had a batch that only handles windows 3.11

I have a old win 3.11 app that uses text files as databases I was hoping I did not have to do updates to my EPoS back office to create data files again (as I am so use to the quick updating that the sql database offers now)

Windows 3.11, seriously, it is almost 20 years old by now? Out of
curiosity: Why do you need that? I don't think there ever has been a Firebird version that worked on Windows 3.11.
