Cubase Score For Windows (1993) *download*
« on: November 15, 2014, 01:50:30 PM »
Cubase Score v1.0
for use with 286/386/486 IBM/PC compatibles!

non-score version here: http://www.oldschooldaw.com/forums/index.php/topic,629.msg653.html#msg653

*** reccommended for use with Windows 3.0 (May 1990) or Windows 3.1 (Apr 1992)
in *STANDARD* 286 mode (not 386 enhanced mode)
type Win /s or Win /2 to ensure STANDARD MODE when launching windows
Wfw3.11 (Aug 1993) does not work in standard mode, but is still compatible


*confirmed working* with windows 95c osr2.5
windows 98 or windows ME may work excellent but this is ***unconfirmed
windows 2000/XP are both 32bit operating systems ***unconfirmed




i believe this is functionally the same as the 1992 cubase for windows version,
with added notation capabilities.

this most likely will not work in windows xp with virtualization mode, but it may work in windows 95!

heres a technote from microsoft which explains that 64bit versions of windows do not support 16bit applications.. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/896458

Quote
In order to run a 16-bit program or a 32-bit program that uses 16-bit processes or 16-bit components, you must install the program on a 32-bit version of Windows. In order to run such a program, you can install a 32-bit version of Windows in a dual-boot configuration with the 64-bit version of Windows. Then, you can restart your computer to the 32-bit version of Windows and install the 16-bit program or 32-bit program that uses 16-bit processes or 16-bit components.

Note The 32-bit version of Windows must be installed on a separate disk volume or separate physical hard disk to function correctly. If you install a 32-bit version of Windows and a 64-bit version of Windows on the same disk volume, your computer may stop responding.

For more information about dual-boot configurations with 64-bit versions of Windows, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
896455 Programs become unstable or do not start after you install a 64-bit version of Windows on the same partition as a 32-bit version of Windows
Note You should upgrade critical 32-bit programs to a 64-bit version to take full advantage of the 64-bit hardware and the 64-bit version of Windows.


so perhaps it will work under windows xp 32 bit???  perhaps the secret to making it work with win xp 32bit is to install Winxp 32bit with 16bit FAT file system? (keeping in mind that each FAT16 partition is limited to 2GB in size -- correction 4gb, see this page for info re: 64k clusters with fat16 on windows xp http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310561)

Quote
FAT16 volumes larger than 2GB are not accessible from computers running Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition (Me), Windows 98, Windows 95, or MS-DOS. The size limit for FAT16 volumes in these operating systems is 2 GB. In other words, to maintain compatibility with Windows Me, Windows 98, Windows 95, or MS-DOS, a FAT16 volume cannot be larger than 2 GB. FAT32 has a limit of 124GB


also http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_95
claims that
Quote
Windows 95 is capable of using all 16-bit Windows 3.x drivers.

Quote
Minimum System Requirements:
operating system:Windows 3.0
RAM: 2MBytes
CPU: 386SX/16Mhz+
GFX: VGA graphics

WHAT IS GOING ON HERE!

So you would have thought that, after two years, music software vendors would get their Windows act together. It seems strange to me that the technical support hotlines of supposedly professional sequencing packages such as Steinberg's Cubase and Passport's Master Tracks Pro still recommend that you run these packages in 'standard' mode. In case you're wondering what this all means, 'standard' (or 286) mode allows you to run Windows 3.1 on older PCs that don't support the Intel 386 'protected' processor mode, or PCs that don't have enough RAM to multi-task efficiently (ie. less than 1Mb of RAM). Even curiouser is their suggestion to run Windows for Workgroups 3.11 (which doesn't support 'standard' mode) in an obscure debugging mode (ie. start Windows using WIN/D:T).

When the new version of Windows (code-named Chicago) hits the streets early next year, it is very unlikely that it will support 'standard' mode at all. This will presumably leave existing users faced with the choice of sticking with an obsolescent version of Windows or buying a new sequencer that can take full advantage of the operating system. To be fair to Steinberg, Cubase does work reliably on the more powerful processors such as the 486. But it does seem strange that similar applications -- for instance Cubase and CakeWalk for Windows -- doing more or less the same task can have such differing requirements in terms of processor power. C'mon guys -- get your act together.

download on xp / 7 and extract the original 'fat16 compatible 8.3' named file
