Slack, Now On Windows 3.1 via @hackaday https://hackaday.com/2019/12/23/slack-now-on-windows-3-1/ …
"Primary development is done on the Mac with Visual Studio Code editor with the files residing on the Mac file system. VC++ 1.52 will access the source files using a mapped drive on SMB share and do the compilation." http://yeokhengmeng.com/2019/12/building-a-new-win-3-1-app-in-2019-part-1-slack-client/ … // this feels like cheating :-)
...there was internet explorer for Windows 3.x and even at the time (1995-6) 5 years after that OS was released) getting parity with Windows 95 in an app was super tough for all those reasons outlined. Office had all but stopped 16 bit development already as did VC++ tooling.
