Hello

I keep getting a strange error message complaining of insufficient disk space when trying to install any Win 3.X program.
My eComStation 2.1 box is a Thinkpad T43 with 40GB of hard disk, all of this being dedicated (in one partition) to eCS.
So, I have plenty of disk space.

Any idea how to fix this issue?

Regards

François

You have to download and use 2GBfix, http://hobbes.nmsu.edu/h-search.php?key=2gbfix&pushbutton=Search . This should help. I think that win 3.1 cannot understand bigger disks than 2GB.

Great!
Your question made look for some win3.1 applications, haven't used such apps for a long time now. I found two as i seems excellent graphics programs at this place http://www.completelyfreesoftware.com/gg2_w31.html . One called DrawPlus - a vector drawing program and one called PagePlus - a desktop publishing program. Both had win32 install programs - but it worked unproblematic through Odin.
