I want to know the general method how to change my program written by C/C++ for Windows running on Windows 95 to Windows 3.11 ? And the method how to change from Wimdows 3.11 to Windows 95 ?
Can we design it run stable in Windows 95 then we bring to Windows 3.11 and debug then correct the error ?
Some program was design from Windows 3.11, the reason if they design from Windows 95 because Windows 95 is better than Windows 3.11 ?

Well there isn't many copies of windows 3.11 anymore.  But if you write the program as a win32s program, it will run fine on window 3.11 (with win32s, most copies have it) or on windows 95, 98 or NT.

To do this, make it a 32 bit program. Make sure you use only functions that area available on both windows 3.11 and windows 95.  Almost all functions will be available on both, so it isn't that big a deal, but you do need to check.  That's all there is to it.

Note a 16 bit windows program will run on all copies of win3.11, you don't have to have win32s installed, but it is more likely to have trouble under the orher versions of windows and it really locks you into an obsolute API and program desing.  I would not go that route.

You can write it on either windows 9X or on 3.11.  But I would copy it to the other and test it on the other frequently.  (even just getting it to load and run is a test.  If you use a function that is available on only one OS it won't even load on the other.)

I am sorry, I can not accept your answer now.
Because I want to know if my program run very stable on Win95,
how can I correct it in Win3.11 then only one program can
run stable on Win95 and Win3.11 both.
