These Windows 3.1 compatibility files work with Turbo Pascal for
1. IDE Patch program
Due to a change in Windows 3.1, the Turbo Pascal for Windows IDE
will not always correctly refresh the status line (displayed at
the bottom of the window). Although this problem is cosmetic and
does not affect the functionality of the editor, it can be
corrected easily by running a simple patch program.
To run the patch program, unzip IDEPATCH.ZIP into your TPW
directory and type the following command at the DOS prompt:
PATCH PATCH_31.TPW TPW.EXE
Note that there is no harm in running the patch twice. This
patch will work on all versions of Turbo Pascal for Windows
1.0 (including international versions).
2. Windows 3.1 API interface units
Unzip the .PAS files inside PASCAL.ZIP into your TPW directory.
WIN31.PAS contains all the Windows 3.1 API additions or
modifications made in USER.EXE, KERNEL.EXE and GDI.EXE. PASCAL.ZIP
also contains a number of interface units for new Windows 3.1
TDW.ZIP contains an updated version of WINDEBUG.DLL. Unzip TDW.ZIP
into your TPW directory and overwrite the previous version of
WINDEBUG.DLL. Note that this updated version of WINDEBUG.DLL works
with TDW 2.50 and TDW 3.00.
*** Note that even with the updated WINDEBUG.DLL, there are known
problems when using TDW with the Windows 3.1 debugging kernel
(available with the Microsoft SDK). You may encounter other
Windows 3.1 incompabilities as well.
4. Demonstration Programs
Note that the demonstration programs all use functions in DLLs
that are newly included with Windows 3.1. You must have Windows
3.1 to use these programs.
