I should add that a huge thanks should go to Ron, Jason and Walter working the hand-off. The materials were in a copy box, so not light by any stretch of the imagination. Thanks guys! A great piece of history saved!

Through the help of list members Walter Hawkes and Jason Perkins, we were able to move a complete Windows 1.04 development binder set from Ron Herold (also another list member) to NY after VCFE. I have scanned all of the books and manuals (SDK, MSC4, MSC5 and various other manuals) as well as recovered all 39 diskettes (everyone working; no errors). I created a Bochs environment running Windows 1.04 and the SDK, along with MASM 4. Getting the mouse to work was a bear, but it now works. The only software I can’t locate is a version of MS Pascal that’s from the same era.
I haven’t tried to build any software with it yet, but if someone wants to give it a try, I can make the Bochs configuration available. At some point I’d like to put together a Web page for it.
