Dinosaur Sighting: Microsoft Windows 3.1 Resource Kit Utilities


When Microsoft released Windows 3.1 in 1992, the included manual was quite slim.  In order to get all the technical details you had to purchase the Microsoft Windows Resource Kit For Operating System Version 3.1, which fortunately only set you back $19.95. The 550 page manual contained 12 chapters and 4 appendices of detailed information on supporting and managing Windows 3.1.
