This is a discussion on Windows 3.1 (working..finally!!) within the PSP Homebrew and Hacks Discussion forums, part of the PSP Development, Hacks, and Homebrew category; Windows 3.1 on psp.... (ha...took me a bit to figure out..)...
It runs fast or very slow???Can you put some videos?
Eh, nothing too special, since hardly any applications support it.
i posted this in another topic..
its actually not that bad.. im sure its running better than windows 95(although i havent tryed 95 ..my memory stick is to small)
the mouse control kinda sucks...
its a touch "laggy"...but it booted in less than a minute or so...give or take
and its less than 10mb on the memory stick..
Give thy instructions on how to do this. I have been trying for 2 day's now. IM me on yahoo: neo43127 or just write a tut and post here.
Yes I compose Hard Trance, and Im a DJ for all sorts of Electronic Music, Click the link above to visit my myspace.
How to run: (for those who care...)
first you may want to get the latest kernel..(put "command.com" and "kernel.sys" in your "c.img" file.
make a directory called "WINDOWS" (or whatever you want to call it)and put all the os files in it.. just make sure to change your paths in the "config..sys" file. and your "autoexec.bat" file..(if you change the directory name)
make a "config.sys" file...then..
in your "config.sys" you NEED to add this..
"DEVICE=C:\WINDOWS\HIMEM. SYS" (without quotes)
and last..your autoexec.bat file..
the "/s" is for standard mode (286 mode) without this it will NOT run.. it will hang at the windows logo screen..
and thats it....
Not to be a negative Nancy, but fig bucking deal. It's a useless, oudated and poorly coded OS running on a very cool piece of hardware. If your PSP had feelings and could speak, it would be crying and begging for you to drop it...no, no, THROW IT onto the concrete sidewalk right now! The only thing more useless than win3.1 on a PSP is slow running win95 on a PSP. This is just my opinion. I cannot understand the reason to run Windows on the PSP. I guess just to do it?? It's not like running windows on a laptop...maybe windows CE would provide more function...but...uhh nevermind.
Linux or BSD would be very cool though.
But, it's cool you got it running. What do you plan on doing with it now, I mean besides Solitaire and MSPaint?
as i stated "for those who care"
its just something to mess around with..like alot of the other useless homebrew on this site..(not saying all)
i dont have any intentions of doing anything with it.. it was more or less a "boredom project" ..getting it running i mean.. and i read about other people on here trying or wanting to run it..sooo...
and for those with the 32mb card who wanted to try out windows ...(like myself)
be as negative as you want... i know its useless..
damn you're negative. "OMFG LOSER QUIT GIVING ME MSPAINT ALEGFHOADOHG****SA"... i've been waiting for a paint program.
Great stuff Blah...
Its definately not something that you'd wanna use, much like Win95 that I spent a good deal of time on. Its more like you said, just getting it to run. I am going to have a go at it, just so I can say I did lol.
can someone post a video of either this or windows 95. i have never been able to test it(i have 2.0) or actually see it run.
Well done mate, i tried for ages on this.
And so what if you wouldnt want to use it, who the hell wants to run 95 with a 10mins startup and more laggy than 56k?
Ummm... I can't belive people are bashing this. Oregon Trail anyone?
omg blah this is great. these are the simplest directions ive found on running 3.1 on psp. no joke
can someone plz record a video of this?i believe u, but i just wanna see windows 3.1 and see something like that running on a psp..thanx
Hmmm, i can't seem to get the mouse working. THeres a black one, but the Windows 3.1 moust doesnt move
it will..you have to mess around with it..(keep tapping it)...
edit: its bochs .. hopefull the guy who ported it makes an update ..with a better mouse..
whats your aim/msn blah? I want to talk to you

I actually still use an old piece of software called Vision (Opcode vision 1.4) developed for windows 3.0. I'd love to see if it were possible to run this on my PSP. :)
And hell take it a step further... make it possible to hook a USB MIDI device to it, and BAAM! a pocket midi controller! :)
yep i'm cool
Good work ...once we get some keyboard and betetr mouse support we can playing old school games
no-keys works with it ..they have a windows 3.1 version of the program..i tryed it..
hey can you run older games like the original Aliens vs predator or some old PC games on ur psp by having 3.1
hey, how do i run this without putting my win xp in jeopardy? does the psp need to be connected to the comp? if so, does that mean this will not overwrite my xp files? plus, were do i put the windows file? on the psp or on my comp? how do i install this on my PSP. thanks in advance
how did you get windows 3.1 on your PSP
