This is incredible that you still maintain this page and sooooo long Calmira software. I used Calmira somewhere about 1996 (or 1997?) on my old 486DX4-100 with Windows 3.11. Next I've moved to OS2 Warp and Slackware Linux and finally to Windows 2000 in 2001 with new PII desktop (I've never used Win95/98 for more than few months). Thank you very much for those brilliant years!
I installed calmira on top of win XP just to test it. How to uninstall this f**** system and get my winXP desktop back?

I use it on top of Win 3.1 instead of using Win 9x. I find that when a power user like me tinkers around too much and for too long with installed software, the OS crashes. Faced with that situation the thought of re-installing Win 9x or higher along with all those updates is daunting. Sometimes even my backup program gets corrupted in the process. So i've switched to copying an old backup of Windows 3.1 and adding Calmira II. I do the Y2K update and i'm up and on my way in minutes. BTW, I use Arachne 1.89 for my emailing too.
You are great!, spiritual one. I can say just, this is like the angel who saves people from enslaving, and Calmira is also a masterpieces of art, beautiful Win 3 total conversion. I never thought I can see my beloved Windows 3.1 comes this alive again.

I remember you submitted an RFD to create a Calmira group in the comp.* hierarchy. I think you withdrew because the folks in news.groups weren't vry interested. I'm writing to tell you that news.groups is now under new management, and you may want to consider trying again. For information about the new system, see www.big-8.org.
Thank you so much! There's life in old laptops yet!
I just got a few old PCs for free. My high school upgraded, so they just throw away perfectly good machines.
I made some small utilities (nothing fancy) quite some time ago that I've putted on the internet. Check out

I just wondered if Calmira is still being developed and if there are any plans for any updates/newer versions? I have used your product since version 1 and it is an excellent addon and has helped countless people, it would be a shame if it stopped now, especially as Windows Vista is coming out soon.
I am very happy that there is something like Calmira is just installed it on my Toshiba 3.1 laptop and it works perfect i now can really USE my laptop again :DDDDD
I just want to say that im using Windows NT 3.51 with Calmira and that its like the best program out there. I have it installed on my Packard Bell.

I recently acquired a P133 laptop with 16MB of RAM. Windows '95 runs - as expected - slow as hell on it. Thanks to Calmira, it's now able to hold its own against my x64 XP-based desktop machine. Well, almost. :D In fact, I'm so impressed with the program; I've even decided to dig out my old Pascal books and get hold of a 16-bit copy of Delphi. Is there anyone else out there still developing Calmira? How about starting a project on SourceForge?

I'm so impressed with the software. I just bought a new windows 3.1 computer on ebay. great work guys keep up the good work
Olá, meu nome é Félix e sou brasileiro. Simplesmente adorei este projeto, ele traduz um antigo desejo meu... mostrar que o Windows 3.11 pode ser tão bom quanto qualquer recente lançamento da Microsoft! Para mim o melhor Windows já lançado foi o 3.x!

23/july/2005. Seems that Calmira is not dead!
I just wanted to say that Calmira is a work of considerable genius in my view. I got rid of windows 95 as it was so slow on my old 486 which was gathering dust in the corner. I put 3.1 back on like the ol days and then put calmira on and it's like a new machine. Amazing. And it's fast. Keep up the good work. I'll send a donation. Gareth
yes, please don't stop working on calmira! it's a wonderful project, wich should stay alive!
Hey, I heard Calmira 4 should be finished in 2003! PLEASE keep going, don't stop Calmira it's a too wonderful Project to get lost! :( I wish you and your project all the best!
This is like the best Win16 app ever. Let's hope to see some more updates and work!
I have successfully run (not ported) Calmira on Knoppix!
You've probably answered this a million times, but I couldn't find the answer on your .de site. Is this simpally a program to make Win3.11 look like v95, or will it also run 32bit programs? If not, will i be able us it and 32Bits (Or whatever it's called)? Thanks a lot.
I think calmira is awsome. I use it on a Pentium 60 with 24Mb. RAM, it has allowd me to customize windows in ways I have not thought of before. I can't wait for the LFN compadible version to be released, I even prefer calmira to explorer! (though because of lfn issues I have not used it under '95)
I like how my computer looks now. I can access programs like as if I where on win 95. Keep up the good work! I can't wait for new updates!
I used Windows 3.1 up until 2001. I was browsing the Internet one day land found Calmira's website. I downloaded a copy of one of the older versions of it 2.2, I think, I got a new computer and put SuSE Linux 8.0 on it and havn't touched Win3 or Calmira for years. I was browing the Internet and found the website again and had to go to the feedback page and say that I love their product. Just now I'm even having fun with WINE, a basic UI and Calimira XP. It looks just like Windows.
Hello, I thanks thats it Calmira gives! I have it on my Old Compaq Presario (486 dx2 66Mhz Svga monitor 16bit) installed. Everything functioned like it is.

Thanks for this great Windows user interface! What an improvement in operating systems over Progman!
I have an old IBM PS/2, 4Mb RAM, 50 Mb HDD, 640x480x4bit. I'm using it since '96. Using Calmira made me feel I'm using a new computer. Calmira is COOL!!! Too bad, that my system still cant use 32bit programs ;-)
I'm a Calmira user because I use Win. 3.11 for microcontroller and electronic propourse. I enjoy having a costumized GUI. Everybody admires this machine by the fact of havin such different desktop unknown by the most. The only missing feature is the LFN (long file names) as in Windows 32 bit systems. I use the 4DOS compatible Description facility, but I'd like to know if there is any forecast to us get access to this resourse, as an enthusiastic user I am. Thanks and best regards.

I have just downloaded Calmira 3.3 and the XP version I tried the regular virsion and my 386 with 6megs of RAM and Windows 3.11 windows for workgroups, and it worked perfectly (it was cool) But later I tried the XP version and everything was messed up. Icon were creppy looking (probably because my computer doesn't do a lot of colors), the taskbar would go down and up and etc. So I was like this doesn't look good, so I looked for a off button for CalmiraXP but I couldn't find one do I tried to uninstall with it on, It deletes most off the files except for the exe, 2 dll files, and a BMP image. Now it is even more messed up, I deleted one DLL,EXE,BMP (it would not let me delete one dll file) And now when I try to open any directories except the Windows directory and the Calmira dir it gives me a error box with a with a OK button and a "!" icon and thats it. And now Windows is always crashing. And now when I rebooted it showed me the backround and that weird error thing and thats it.
I enjoy your Calmira shell program alot. I started using computers when win 98 came out and am totaly unfamilar with 3.11's normal use. I use Calmira on my 1.6 Duron computer's 2nd hard drive. I really like the frindly interface and would enjoy another Calmira with better win32 support.
I installed Calmira XP on my old Pentium 133 w/40 megs of RAM. It is the most AWESOME thing I've ever seen! My buddy who works for Microsoft could not believe what he was seeing! I have just started with Calmira, but plan on delving deeper into the possibilities!! THANK YOU for the BEST piece of software I've ever used!! GREAT JOB!!
Hey i altered the calmira II to look more xpish and was about all the way done when i sad wtf i might as well and go ahead and make all purty i have 32 bit color depth in win31 so it looks amazing i did this on my offline labtop so i really dont know how to make a screenshot all the icons are really pretty like longhorn 4074 the taskbar is of slate and plex and the new jade theme (under construction) all the title bars look slaty or plexy jade has errors but coming along i am looking to maybey submit this to make a Calmira III i really dont know of a version # i also added a new win32 support to run win9x files alot more and better it is an emulator works really nice bc it will do a search for dll files and if it cant find 1 it will ask for them on a disk then copy them to a directory on your disk it supports lfn and everything long live windows 3.1 ~_~ i am currently looking to buy licencing for win31 from Micro$oft they said i have to change the name to make it a diff os name and ver # i have to remove all ms logos ms names and it cannot run on msdos it has to have a different dos command prompt and i have to include an installer different from the one windows uses and cannot use certain terms it is under review from the ms board of operating systems distrobutions to make win3.1 gnu pplus afterwards i have to host a sight containing scource code and original windows 3.1 setup files untouched but i can sell a stable version if i want to so there will be a new windows like os coming soon hopefully with your permissions utilizing your shell i am doing this as nonprofit and will prolly not sell the full ver just as a dl link the os looks nice and will be available shortly :)
Hi, just a ghost from Calmira's past dropping by. Glad to see that the site survived my bungling! :)
I just wanted to say that for many years I had an old 486 pc with the w 3.1. I cannot tell how amusing was, little by little, go changing the look of it to a windows 95. The only thing I could never did, was to add some kind of logo.sys to start the pc. (Is there a way?).
I pulled out my old 3.1 laptop and I found this amazing software. thanks for making it.
Actually I am not trying to find a new shell for Windows 3.1, although I have used Calmira in the past. I actually want to keep Windows XP, which my computer currently runs. However I desire to have the old Program Manager shell back.
I was about to throw out an old laptop when I heard about Calmira. Now it looks just like Win XP.
i used calmira for 2 years but alas i have been sucked in to the windows 95 trap, and have not used calmira since and have had to put up with illeagal opperations and such but if anyone ever makes a windows 95 calmira i will use it in aheart beat! great job guys

Hello Calmira Team!
wow! great software! i feel the need to get a 3.1 comp from good will and start playing around with it.
Los felicito a todos por todo el trabajo que estan haciendo, lo que redunda en mejorar maquinas que de otra manera serian basura contaminante. Ya que para el actual sistema economico lo que paso se tira.....grave error para un sistema cerrado, y lo estamos pagando.
What a program! It's the best out there. Windows 3.1?? What Windows 3.1? I haven't seen it since Calmira was made.

I'd just like to say thank you for such a wonderful product! At my place of business, we have a computer with wfw3.11 attached to a CNC cutting machine. The cutting program will not run in win95, so we are stuck with wfw3.11. Calmira really made it easy to operate the otherwise tedious computer. In fact, just being able to manage files quickly and launching programs may have saved us alot of money by eliminating the need for new software! Thank you and keep up the good work!
Incredible soft , i like it , from Argentine Vey soon , my 386 page!!

A great piece of software and full cudos to all involved in it's creation and development. Very highly recommended. I have been a user since version 2. Works great with win/os2 in OS/2 Warp.

Calmira ist the best for Win 3.1x. When comes the next release? (With long Filenames) We are waiting for........
Just 2 let anyone wo ,like me , didnt realize- tho ive been using calmira ( and calypso, actually, still got it buried in my files somewhere) for a couple years or so, i didnt realize just how different the various versions are- i was using 3.3 for the last year and think calxp33's really attractive too (331's a bit buggy! )- gotta say tho , in my opinion , cant beat the tasteful approach of Cal 30DB (nice job Dave!!!) , and his run dialog works beautifully- i wish Cal33 had something in its explorer like it - Theyre all nice though - Those icons in Calxp ! Yes! To everybody tweaking calmira -Kudos 2 U!!!
I LOVE THIS SITE

Greetings from Lawrence Bishop.
The latest version of the LFN driver for DOS -- DOSLFN 0.32m(dated on Jan 16,2003) works very stable and can now fully support all long file names,including DBCS LFNs (such as Chinese LFNs,Japanese LFNs).It can be downloaded from: http://www-user.tu-chemnitz.de/~heha/hs_freeware/doslfn.zip Therefore,Calmira can make use of it.

Calmira is what i have seeked for years. It really reincarnates my old computer. You really should keep up work to provide new and even more better GUI. I wish there someday will be a system to run 32-bit software.
Name: Billy Shaw
Great job guys love it keep up the good work.
I've been using Calmira for about two years on my old 486 and it runs great! There hasn't been any updates for awhile, but I hope you guys keep up the good work and make future improvements! ;D
