I tested this Windows Version on a Pentium 166 with MS DOS 6.22 and it worked great.

But the Windows in itself it's horrible. The installation works in a text mode system (check the pics I made)

The menus didn't worked well, you needed to have the click pushed until you've selected what you wanted
(not like today you click, menu comes, you search and than click again...)
