How to open a file from windows 3.1 under XP?
« on: March 26, 2004, 10:07:39 AM »
This may sound like dumb question but my brother has a cardfile file that he wants from his old windows 3.1 and I found a program (AZZ cardfile) that can open it in any environment. But what I'm concerned with is that am I going to be abale to open this file with XP or any other OS? had anybody ever tried this before? I will format the hard drive of the new computer with FAT32 format, but is there anything that I need to do to make sure that the old hard drive (windows 3.1 hard drive) is accessible after I install XP? is there any program that may help?
Any help would be appreciated
you can either e-mail me at [email protected] or just simply reply back here

Cheers

You should be able to slave the old drive and read the files fine.
